THE REASON

by | Read by Johnny Heller

Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Sirls's debut novel centers around a small Michigan church congregation, a storm-ravaged fifteen-foot cross, and a quartet of characters: a blind minister, a young boy stricken with leukemia, his mother, and a mysterious stranger. Heller's compelling delivery of miraculous healings--from addiction, relationships, and illness--is authentic and believable. He especially shines in his portrayal of Alex, capturing his fears and boyish innocence with a sweet vocal pitch and tone. His depiction of Alex's bone marrow aspiration spurs empathy and tears while scenes with Mr. Brave the puppet, a distraction for Alex, give listeners welcome relief from his painful experience. Authentic sound effects combine with Heller's deliberate pacing to keep listeners immersed in the story until the surprise ending. G.D.W. [Published: MAY 2013]
