The Sinners’ Garden

by William Sirls

Book Info
About the book: In the small Lake Erie township of Benning, someone is at work cultivating a supernatural garden . . .
Andy Kemp’s young life has been as ravaged as his scarred face. Disfigured by an abusive father, the teenager hides behind his books and an impenetrable wall of cynicism and anger.
As Andy’s mother struggles to reconnect with him, his Uncle Rip returns transformed from a stint in prison and wants to be a mentor to the reclusive boy, doing everything he can to help end Andy’s pain. When Andy begins hearing strange music through his iPod and making near-prophetic announcements, Rip is convinced that what Andy is hearing is the voice of God.
Elsewhere, police officer Heather Gerisch responds to a late-night breaking and entering in one of the poorest homes in town. She soon realizes that the masked prowler has left thousands of dollars in gift cards from a local grocery store. As the bizarre break-ins continue and Heather pursues the elusive “Summer Santa,” Andy and Rip discover an enormous and well-kept garden of wildflowers that seems to have grown overnight at an abandoned steel mill.
Soon, they realize who the gardener is, and a spree of miracles transfigures this small town from a place of hopelessness into a place of healing and beauty.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This book caught my attention with the really weird break-ins that were happening in the community. I mean, someone breaking in and leaving money and gifts? This alone kept my head in this book until it was finished. Andy Kemp had reason to be upset because of his face being deformed because of a fire, and his mother had reason to be upset because Andy blamed her for his medical condition. The blessing came when Uncle Rip return from prison now a Christian, and strikes out to help Andy and is willing to do anything he can to help.  And then the music started appearing on Andy’s iPod. Could this be a voice from God?
This is a very intriguing story with characters that are solid and ones I grew to love as the story unfolded. The Sinners Garden tells of real life struggles and how a person is made whole through the love of Jesus. I appreciate the author having the characters live through the disappointments and struggles before our eyes are we read the pages. I felt pulled into this story in a special way, making it so realistic. I love books like this, and I loved this story!
If you enjoy Christian fiction, you will really enjoy The Sinners’ Garden so I encourage you to pick up your copy asap!
