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.

I highly recommend this 5-star read of a book. It's a love story. No, I don't mean of the romance genre, though there's romance in it. It's a LOVE story -- with a lot of heart, literally, and on many other subtler but profound levels. It's a book, that in one story, paints a picture using the palett...

5.0 Kiedy płaczą świerszcze
Piękna, dopracowana w każdym szczególe. Idealna dla kogoś, kto szuka spokojnej, poruszającej i niezwykle mądrej lektury. Polecam do filiżanki dobrej herbaty i chwili relaksu gdy cichnie gwar, a za oknami zaczynają śpiewać świerszcze.
