Publisher's Description

A man with a painful past. A child with a doubtful future. And a shared journey toward healing for both their hearts.

It begins on the shaded town square in a sleepy Southern town. A spirited seven-year-old has a brisk business at her lemonade stand. But the little girl’s pretty yellow dress can’t quite hide the ugly scar on her chest.

Her latest customer, a bearded stranger, drains his cup and heads to his car, his mind on a boat he's restoring at a nearby lake. The stranger understands more about the scar than he wants to admit. And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

Before it's over, they'll both know there are painful reasons why crickets cry . . . and that miracles lurk around unexpected corners.

Author Bio

 

ChristianBookPreviews.com

In his latest novel, When Crickets Cry, Charles Martin offers fiction that examines Christian virtues. Haunted by his past as a former failed physician, Reese must overcome his own guilt and grief before he can perform the life-saving heart transplant operation needed by a little girl named Annie. The plot shifts between flashback and present, and between heartbreak and hope, leading up to a dramatic conclusion.

Martin has created highly developed characters, lifelike dialogue, and a well crafted story. He draws his readers along with just enough details, until the right time when the whole truth about Reese’s past is revealed. When Crickets Cry is full of information about the heart, both as a muscle--the result of much research--and as the housing of our souls. Geared toward adults, this book is good reading for the story alone. However, because of its soulful insights, it also would make an excellent addition to any church library as a counseling tool. – Bridgette L. Oakes, Christian Book Previews.com

    The members of our book club enjoyed this book so much that a few of them have already gone out to buy other books by the same author. WHEN CRICKETS CRY is well written, with lots of symbolism, foreshadowing, literary illusions and a few scripture quotes. We fell in love with these characters. Their problems were relatable, and we suffered right along with them to the final conclusions, rooting for them all the way.

    "When Crickets Cry," by Charles Martin is perhaps one of the best books I've read in a very long time. I 'read myself to sleep' almost every night of the week and as a retired public school Reading Specialist, I delight in a great new find! In my opinion this is just such a book...and well worth the money.

    This book captured my attention right from the start. It was well written and I found it hard to put down. However, the ending was a bit disappointing and somewhat confusing. Overall though, I am glad I read it, because it depicted real human emotion. It makes you laugh and cry and I would definitely recommend this book.
