Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of The Mountain Between Us comes the moving story of a man with a painful past, a little girl with a doubtful future, and a shared journey toward healing for both of 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.

Terrible Copy of a Great Book

I purchased a download of this book, one of my favorites from a favorite modern author, to keep on my iPod for frequent reading. But the text is so filled with errors that the story is almost ruined for me. I should've just bought a copy of the actual book to keep on my shelf - would've been a lot cheaper, too! I didn't have this problem with my Kindle purchases ... Will certainly not be purchasing another high-priced low-quality "book" here.
