When Crickets Cry
Reese is living out on a lake across from his brother-in-law, Charlie, and trying to forget the past. Seven year old Annie is selling lemonade in front of the hardware store where her aunt works. Reese notices a scar on Annie's chest and the girl's enthusiasm in selling her lemonade. Through a series of events, these two lives become entwined as a search for a new heart for Annie begins.
This touching story had a slow start with lots of geographical and technical description that was a little helpful, but not fully necessary to the story. The character development was excellent. Once getting through the mire to the meat of the story, it was very inspirational and redeeming.
