    ITEM#: 15256468

    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.

      The Sinners Garden by William Sirls There are some books that bring out the best and worst emotions in you. The Sinners Garden did just that. I felt the pain of the characters, I cried with them, felt the joy of forgiveness and the anger of injustice. This 5 star book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. It caused me to pause and reflect on occasions. The ending was a big surprise I never saw coming. The author William Sirls’s strong faith is evident in his writings. Life in the small town of Benning’s has taken an interesting turn. There is the elusive “Summer Santa” that is blessing the neediest of citizens. Miracles are being preformed, God is speaking and faith and forgiveness can be found. Andy and his mother have had a rough go of it. He feels his disfigurement is her fault. And her unwillingness to talk about the past leaves him with no other choice but to believe the lies he has been feed. God uses Andy with prophetic words and dreams. His Uncle Rip does everything he can to mentor and help Andy find his way. Through the miracle of a garden of wildflowers they find hope, faith, healing and the love of God. To quote Rip, “God is who He says He is, He is going to do what He says He is going to do, and that we always have access to Him. We aren’t here for our own good. We are here to glorify God.” I highly recommend this book. The author William Sirls did a great job of showing that God did not only perform miracles 2000 years ago but still does them even today. I found The Sinners Garden to be a compelling story of faith, forgiveness and hope. The Book Club Network Inc. provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for their, the authors and publishers generosity.
