Good story, a bit religious but heartwarming story. ( )

In order to add drama to the story the main character who was a heart surgeon left his extremely ill wife alone for 20 hours a day, everyday, while he was being a very important physician. What??? And we the reader are supposed to feel sorry for this "great" guy for all he has gone through. ( )

By far my favorite Charles Martin book, but I love all of his books. This one has suspense, mystery, love and it sets my heart at peace that prayers are answered, sometimes in the biggest way possible, sometimes in the smallest. ( )

Jonny has spent his whole life on a mission. He is one of those rare people who knows his purpose on this earth from a very young age. He was born to fix hearts, or more precisely, Emma's heart.

From the third grade, every moment of his life has been leading up to one thing, healing Emma. So when things go awry, when he can't save Emma, guilt consumes him. He leaves his avocation and goes into hiding.

But God isn't done with Jonny. This is a story of his gradual reawakening, his redemption, and hope. The characters are so real you are left wondering what they're doing now. You cheer for them, cry with them, and hope with them. The human spirit is a miracle of God, and Charles Martin knows.

Read it. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

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. Her latest customer, a bearded stranger, drains his cup and heads to his car. 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.… (more)
