When Mockingbirds Sing

Full Product Description

‘When Mockingbirds Sing’ is a quirky and thought-provoking novel about the shaded boundaries between miracles and the imagination.

In the small town of Mattingly lives a young girl called Leah. Growing up with a stutter meant she didn’t have any friends, but this also gave her time to practice painting wonderful, rich paintings full of prophetic imagery. But when Leah’s paintings spectacularly come true the whole town takes notice of her unique, eerie gift.

When asked how she does it, Leah never takes the praise saying it was her invisible friend – the Rainbow Man – who can tell the future. Her father, the town psychologist, is stumped at his daughters ‘condition’ while the town minister is perplexed at why God would speak to a child instead of him, a trained and loyal man of the church.

With the whole town are gossiping about the prophetic paintings by this strange girl, Leah’s drawings take a darker turn. A tragedy hits the town leaving everyone in danger forcing them to make a decision: dismiss them as chance… or believe in the invisible God.

When Mockingbirds Sing by Billy Coffey was published by Thomas Nelson in June 2013 and is our 26954th best seller. The ISBN for When Mockingbirds Sing is 9781401688219.

Publisher's Description

What marks the boundary between a miracle from God and the imagination of a child?

Leah is a child from away, isolated from her peers because of her stutter. But then she begins painting scenes that are epic in scope, brilliant in detail, and suffused with rich, prophetic imagery. When the event foreshadowed in the first painting dramatically comes true, the town of Mattingly takes notice.

Leah attributes her ability to foretell the future to an invisible friend she calls the Rainbow Man. Some of the townsfolk are enchanted with her. Others fear her. But there is one thing they all agree on—there is no such thing as the Rainbow Man.

Her father, the town psychologist, is falling apart over his inability to heal his daughter or fix his marriage. And the town minister is unraveled by the notion a mere child with no formal training may be hearing from God more clearly than he does.

While the town bickers over what to do with this strange child, the content of Leah’s paintings grows darker. Still, Leah insists that the Rainbow Man’s heart is pure. But then a dramatic and tragic turn of events leaves the town reeling and places everyone’s lives in danger. Now the people of Mattingly face a single choice:

Will they cling to what they know... or embrace the things Leah believes in that cannot be seen?
