Cicadas appear every seventeen years in such quantity that they fill the skies and harmlessly pelt anything that moves. The town of Anderson celebrates the coming of these insects with a festival called Cicada Song.

In 1987 a young boy named Jacob Ramsey fell for a girl named Sara whose family was visiting for Cicada Song. Little did they realize, however, that their young love would end ten years later during the most shocking moment in Anderson's history.

Time passes and the next Cicada Song begins. Self-published author Ellis Barnes is invited to Anderson as an attraction, and there he meets the quick-witted but guarded Sara, who is now fully grown and lovely. He quickly falls for her, but something from Sara's past prevents her from getting too close. Facing resistance from Jacob Ramsey's best friend Stan and the town drunk Phil, Ellis is determined to uncover exactly what Sara's mysterious past is. What he finds will force Ellis to confront a faith-shattering tragedy from his own past, a tragedy that diminished his faith in the Christian church, but also one which might hold the key to overcoming Sara's private barriers. And what secret does Phil, the town drunk, hold regarding the moment that shattered Sara's life forever?

From the Author:

Cicada Song was a bit of a blind project for me. Like all my writings, I wrote the story for fun with no intention of ever publishing it. Then after some research, I decided to give it a shot and uploaded it eagerly, anticipating what others might have to say about it. What I found was that readers have zero tolerance for novice errors and a lack of professionalism when it comes to publishing; and so I spent nearly a year updating and editing the story to the standard that it currently finds itself. It was hard and daunting, but I've grown more as a writer since this book was first published than I had in all the years previous. I want to thank the readers whose constructive criticism helped show me that I could be a better writer than I truly believed I could be. The quality of the story and the praise it's receiving is a testament to the readers who were not afraid to point out errors and show a self-taught writer that he always has room to improve.

Thank you,
Bradford Combs

From the Back Cover:

Ellis Barnes meets the quick-witted but guarded Sara and their mutual attraction becomes obvious. He will soon discover, however, that a mysterious tragedy from Sara's past will forever come between them and the feelings they have for one another. Ellis struggles to understand Sara's predicament; should she stay loyal to a man who can never love her back, or should she pursue the possibility of new love with Ellis? To understand this Ellis must confront a faith-shattering tragedy from his own past, one that might also hold the key to overcoming Sara's private barriers. And what secret does the town drunk keep regarding the very moment that shattered Sara's life forever?

Full of mystery, suspense, and questions of faith, Cicada Song is a novel that will remain with you long after you've turned the final page.
