Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "The Narrator almost ruined it for me..:("
    If you could sum up The Sinners' Garden in three words, what would they be?

    Love, Grace, Mercy


    What did you like best about this story?

    I fell in love with William Sirls first book and HAD to get this one! His stories are FRESH; nothing "I've heard a story like this before" about it. His stories have a metaphysical feel to it, but it all works out in the end and it's not too weird at all. It's like nothing you've ever read before.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John McLain’s performances?

    NOT ON YOUR LIFE! His female voices were horrible; they all sounded like they were strung out on drugs which made you have to really "work" at figuring out their true character because they all sounded tired and haggard. The only voice that was ok, was Rips. Andy's voice was ok, but all of his characters besides Rip sounded WAY too old and worn out. John McLain needs to read ONLY male characters or not at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope they re-record this book with another narrator because it was really interesting and i would listen to it again, IF ONLY there was another narrator.

    "Engaging story with interesting characters"
    What did you love best about The Sinners' Garden?

    The way the story stayed so interesting all the way through.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sinners' Garden?

    When Andy started hearing from God through the iPod


    Which character – as performed by John McLain – was your favorite?

    Andy.


    If you could rename The Sinners' Garden, what would you call it?

    Can't.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the final twist at the end. I was hooked from the beginning. Well worth the credit. I only wish this author had more than two books.
