With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files, and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One, and the White House residence.

A man with a painful past. A child with a doubtful future. And a shared journey toward healing for both their hearts... It begins on the shaded town square in a sleepy Southern town. A spirited seven-year-old has a brisk business at her lemonade stand. But the little girl’s pretty yellow dress can’t quite hide the ugly scar on her chest. The stranger understands more about it than he wants to admit. And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

Where does When Crickets Cry rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Best of all books I've ever read, not just in audio format

What did you like best about this story?

so personal and always with a surprise change over almost at the end

Which scene was your favorite?

As a heart transplant recipient myself (way back in '94) I connect with many scenes and personalities in this amazing story. Now I pre-order and read all of Charles Martin's works and am never disappointed.

If you could rename When Crickets Cry, what would you call it?

title is perfect (once you read the story)

Any additional comments?

I keep buying more and more copies to give away to friends and strangers I encounter
