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.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
Excerpt from blog review:
"It took a little while to finally read about Annie's journey. Annie is the average innocent, little, eight year old girl, who is full of faith and smiles. She is the sunshine to everyone who meets her. Her story through heart disease and transplantation will pull at your heart strings. She reminded me of my much younger self in some ways. Little and naive. Very smart, but not fully aware of her situation."
"There is a lot of medical terminology about the cardiovascular system, however, it was interesting to learn about how the heart functions. You will learn a lot about how daunting the transplantation process actually is. I could really sympathize with this book because I've been through the transplantation process myself. There were shocking twists through-out the novel that really made me realize how truly blessed I am despite all my health issues."
