Charles Martin – When Crickets Cry


From the author of The Mountain Between Us and the New York Times best seller Where the River Ends.

“[C]harming characters and twists that keep the pages turning.” (Southern Living)

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.

This was an incredible book and honestly should be made into a movie! I fell in love with the characters, and the plot took twists I wasn’t expecting. As always, Charles Martin did not disappoint. I am working on reading all of his books and haven’t read one yet that I didn’t absolutely love!
