Product Description

When paramedics find a malnourished 6-year-old boy near a burning car that holds a dead woman, they wonder who he is---and why he won't talk! Chase, a small-town journalist, is assigned to cover the story and investigate the boy's identity. But will his search unearth long-buried emotions about his own history? 320 pages, softcover from Nelson.

Publisher's Description

They have one summer to find what was lost long ago.

"Never settle for less than the truth," she told him. But when you don't even know your real name, the truth gets a little complicated. It can nestle so close to home it's hard to see. It can even flourish inside a lie. And as Chase Walker discovered, learning the truth about who you are can be as elusive—and as magical—as chasing fireflies on a summer night.

A haunting story about fishing, baseball, home cooking, and other matters of life and death.

    I love a book that draws me in deeper and deeper until I just can't wait to read it again! You can see things unfolding, and you wonder if this or that is going to happen. Sometimes you're right and sometimes you're wrong.

    What a wonderful story! Although it was emotionally draining, it was also deeply satisfying! The characters seemed real!! The whole story was believable! I felt like I knew them. I wanted to know them! Intrigue, mystery, romance, adventure, and satisfaction!

    I felt sad when I finished the book! I wanted the story to keep on going...

    I've always enjoyed Charles Martin's writing style...he makes me feel like I am right in the middle of the story. This book is another one of those. I love the characters---especially "Sketch". One thing to note, the Christian influence throughout it is quite subtle...if you are looking for something more bold, this book may be lacking something for you.

    I have to say that The story started out a little slow but once I reached the first chapter I was hooked. I love Chuck's writting technique and the characters were relational and true in the eyes of my soul. I'm currently involved in a sexual abuse case with a young girl and this story resinated with me. I heard great words of wisdom and I just loved this book.

    I wonder why this is being sold as Christian fiction? I see nothing Christian about it and it is starting out like any other worldly book. I flipped through the rest of the book and see nothing at all Christian about it. It has a dark tone. It is a real downer so far and I can't make myself read on. A huge waste of money!

    This is a story every southerner must read because we all have an Uncle Willee, whose claim to fame is his hilarious one liners termed as Williee-isms in the book -my favorite including "It's so dry the trees are bribing the dogs" and a beautiful but haunted cousin Tommye, as well as a friend like Chase Walker, who is good as gold but walks around aimlessly looking for something he's had most of his life. When a kid is found abandoned, abused, and acrimoniously silent, Chase, a local reporter searches out his past and in turn, finds his own. Martin ceremoniously tells a story of keeping secrets as long as necessary, crazy relatives on the proverbial back forty acres, and the sacrificial love that only fathers can give as close to your heart as possible; something all southerners instinctively know from birth but it's worth saying again and reading about.
