When Crickets Cry Chasing Fireflies Wrapped in Rain Long Way Gone Send Down the Rain The Water Keeper
When Crickets Cry Chasing Fireflies Wrapped in Rain Long Way Gone Send Down the Rain The Water Keeper
Description Travel to a sleepy town square in Georgia, where a 7-year-old child sells lemonade to raise funds for a heart transplant, an onlooker watches, and a speeding truck comes around the bend, changing both lives forever. 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. Photographer Tucker Mason has traveled the world, capturing things other people don't see. But he's blind to one thing: how to forgive his father. Returning to the Southern estate where he and his brother were raised, things begin to change. Singer/songwriter Cooper O'Connor thought he could make it big and lost everything in Nashville. After he survives being shot and left to die in a fire, he can no longer sing or play music. Will he find hope and healing when he returns home? Allie is recovering from a fire that destroyed her family’s restaurant, as well as her husband’s accidental death. After a bittersweet reunion with her childhood sweetheart, emerging secrets threaten to destroy hope for their second chance at love. A retired priest, Murphy Shepherd lives alone on an island tending the grounds for a church with no parishioners. On a mission to help a friend, he meets a woman searching for her daughter who may have been abducted into the world of trafficking.

Review

'Martin (When Crickets Cry) crafts a playful, enticing tale of a modern prodigal son. Told as a memoir, the novel begins in the middle of Cooper O’Connor’s story as he struggles to get his life together on the streets and in the bars of Leadville, Colo. ' (Publishers Weekly)

“Another stellar novel from Martin. His fabulous gift for characterization is evident on each page. Layers of the story are peeled back to show the spiritual truth underneath the gripping plot. Cooper is an intricate character with an amazing story to tell, and the supporting cast is just as important to provide additional depth and understanding. This novel should be on everyone’s must-purchase list.” (
RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, TOP PICK!) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
