Overview

Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin

They have one summer to find what was lost long ago.

"Never settle for less than the truth," she told him. But when you don't even know your real name, the truth gets a little complicated. It can nestle so close to home it's hard to see. It can even flourish inside a lie. And as Chase Walker discovered, learning the truth about who you are can be as elusive—and as magical—as chasing fireflies on a summer night.

A haunting story about fishing, baseball, home cooking, and other matters of life and death.

My husband surprised me with this book as a gift when returning home from a trip away for a few days. He said, 'it looks like something you will like'. I absolutely loved this book. Charles Martin was a new author to me, but he fast became one of my absolute favorites. His book drew me in, and I couldn't put it down. After finishing this book I immediately went out, and bought every Charles Martin book I could find. To anyone reading this. . .get this book, you will enjoy every minute of it.

I feel in love with Charles Martin when reading When Crickets Cry. This man is one of the best writers I have read in a long time. The way he draws you and half way through you think you have figured it out and then goes another direction. LOVE IT! Also as a reader of many Christian authors I adore the way Charles use a simple but always present way of showing the struggles we face everyday. Chasing Fireflies is a book that will make you laugh, cry and scratch your head but it is one that is worth it.

Charles Martin puts words to deep emotions like few writers are able. At the same time, he craftily designs a story that demonstrates the beauty of love. I've read a lot of classic literature. Only one author of all that I have read moved my heart the way the Charles Martin can- Fedor Dostoevsky.

The best of men and the worst of men all in one book. Corrupt evil may prevail on the outside, but it can never tear down TRUE goodness that comes from a heart full of REAL God given peace. Charles Martins descriptions can sweep you away from the spot you are in, figuratively and literally, and set you down in a dusty little town full of mystery and secrets just waiting to be told. Hope/doubt, Forgiveness/revenge, Peace/longing are emotions we all struggle with. This book takes you through them all and helps you sort through them carefully and gently.

The book was fantastic. The writer keeps your interest throughout the story. You do not want to put the book down.

I absolutely could not put this book down!  There truly are bad and evil people in the world, but he balances that  by showing us the good also.  Charles Martin has a wonderful way with words and seems to just  have stories waiting to burst forth from his mind and heart.   I've read most all of them but have been away for awhile, and found this one I hadn't yet read and am thankful I didn't miss it.

I've now officially read all of Charles Martin's books. This is one of the best, and that's saying something. The characters are so real, I feel like I have a bunch of friends hanging out on my bookshelf, waiting for me to pick them up again. I will, someday. I promise. I particularly loved the relationship between Chase and Unc and the picture it paints of what the father-child relationship should look like, juxtaposed with that of Jack and Tommye--the ultimate "what not to do." This lends credence to the idea that, instead of always trying to discover "who" we are, we ought to spend more time considering "whose" we are. When we know who we belong to, the rest falls into place

I laughed and cried. My favorite author. Helps each of us to see the wounded soul within another.

I fell in love with Charles Martin's work after reading When Crickets Cry and Water from my Heart. I didn't think they could get much better but you can't put this book down. His human interest stories will open your eyes and break your heart in a million little pieces. This is a must read. I could have read it in one sitting if my battery wouldn't have died.
