RT Rating

Martin's lyrical prose captivates the reader from the first page to the last. His skillful character development and ability to make the languid Southern setting a part of the story elevate this novel to the keeper shelf.

Chase, a newspaper reporter from a small Georgia town, was raised by foster parents. This makes him uniquely able to identify with a young boy, found at the site of an accident involving a train and a car. The woman in the car is dead, and the boy is covered with signs of persistent long-term abuse. He also seems to be unable to speak, yet he draws with uncanny
aptitude. As Chase begins to connect with the boy, he finds himself on a
journey of discovery as both of them search for their true identities. (THOMAS NELSON, Jun., 356 pp., $22.99)
