Publisher's Summary

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. The stranger understands more about it 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.

I loved his voice. He brought a calmness that made me want to just sit back & keep listening.

Who was the most memorable character of When Crickets Cry and why?

Hard to say. I think each of the main characters were equally strong. I think I liked Charlie. He was a true friend.
