What if a person could really see God? Hear Him? And know what He wants that person to do? These questions are ones the characters in When Mockingbirds Sing have to answer. Will they believe?
Leah is a 9 year-old loner. She stutters and this disability has left her outside the circle of her peers. An artist as well, Leah paints a painting unlike anything she has ever painted before. It turns out to be a prophetic painting that changes the life of one man in the small town she and her family call home. Leah says she painted what her invisible friend, the Rainbow Man, told her to paint. As more paintings continue to come, they turn darker and both Leah’s family and the rest of the town don’t know what to do with her. Leah continues to encourage them to believe, before it is too late.
This was an interesting book. Part of me liked it and the other part didn’t. I don’t think there is anything wrong with the story itself, but I think it is more of personal preference of mine. I just didn’t really care for the story. I find it hard to say why and I am sure many other people will really like this story. I think it was just too “out there” for me.
I was given a copy of this book to review by BookSneeze. I was not required to write a positive review.
