Overview

Cicadas appear every seventeen years in such quantity that they fill the skies and harmlessly pelt anything that moves. The town of Anderson celebrates the coming of these insects with a festival that they call Cicada Song.

In 1987 a young boy named Jacob Ramsey fell for a girl named Sara, whose family was visiting for Cicada Song. Little did they realize, however, that their young love would end ten years later during the most shocking moment in Anderson's history.

Time passes and the next Cicada Song begins. Self-published author Ellis Barnes is invited to Anderson as an attraction and there he meets the quick-witted but guarded Sara, now fully grown and quite lovely. He quickly falls for her but something from Sara's past prevents her from getting too close. Facing resistance from Jacob Ramsey's best friend, Stan, and the town drunk, Phil, Ellis is determined to uncover exactly what Sara's mysterious past is. What he finds will force Ellis to confront a faith-shattering tragedy from his own past, a tragedy that diminished his faith in the Christian church, but also one which might hold the key to overcoming Sara's private barriers. And what secret does Phil, the town drunk, hold regarding the moment that shattered Sara's life forever?

Bradford Combs writes a love story full of mystery, suspense, and questions of faith that will stick with you long after its final page is turned.

    Decent read

    Not really a believable story line but enough decent chapters to keep me reading. Characters a little shallow and wasn't able to fall into the book like I usually do. Review by CherishD

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Felt like I got to know the characters. And showed human flaws and God's teaching of forgiveness.

    Good story

    I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend. It was a little unrealistic at the end but at least it was a somewhat happy ending. Kind of bittersweet.

    Not the ordinary romance

    I liked the story, but it was definitely different - the good and the not so good guys are hard to recognize and the happily ever after is not what I initially expected. The story is a bit preachy at times.

    I absolutely loved this book. This emerging author kept me in such a state of suspense I literally could not sleep until I finished the book.
    I went straight to Barnes & Noble and bought next book in his Anderson series, 'Not Quite Home'.

    Well worth reading

    A good story with a bittersweet ending. This author proves that a book doesn't have to have pages of graphic sex scenes to be good. I will be reading more from this author.
