When Crickets Cry by Charlie Martin

I really enjoyed this story of a man with a past and a girl needing saving.
It was compelling, as you wanted to learn the backstory of Reese, and find out what would happen to the little girl.

So so good, and a great message.

Here’s the official plot summary from goodreads:  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, his mind on a boat he’s restoring at a nearby lake. 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.
