Part medical thriller, part romance and part a work of real literary depth, Charles Martin has written a book well worth reading in When Crickets Cry. You can’t help but fall in love with seven year old Annie whose heart is damaged but finds the strength to repairs the hearts around her. I gripped this book with my nails in suspense of not knowing what healing, emotionally and physically is possible for each character in the book.
Martin always gives me characters that face their struggles honestly with fears and resistance, much like myself. In When Crickets Cry I wanted them to not give up and yet I could understand the desire they faced to give in to hopelessness. Quitting is so much easier.
If you like Nicholas Sparks books, you’ll love When Crickets Cry.
