William Sirls’ THE SINNERS’ GARDEN iPad Mini Giveaway!

       

 My Thoughts:
 Ok this one is going to be all over the place. This book had a
 great story. However the author took too long to tell it. It was
 too wordy and extremely too long.  Which makes me sad because
 it was a good good story. It was a struggle to keep reading
 because it seemed like the story would never wrap up and end.
 I enjoyed his first book so much and was looking forward to this
 story. I loved Andy and really wanted to punch his absent
 father for filling his head with lies about his mom. Rip is a neat guy,
 one that many people my age will relate to. I am not giving up on
  this author, he has good stories to tell. This book was provided for
  review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
  3.5 stars.

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.
