sun moon stars rain

by Jan Cheripko

This title is now available on MP3-CD from Brilliance Audio for only $14.99. (Please go to Brilliance or to order - we no longer sell directly.)

Heartbroken over a failed romance, talented pianist Danny Murtaugh drops out of music school and returns to his rural hometown, where he discovers two new passions: one for the untouched woodlands of the reclusive Frederick P. Garrick, and one for Stephanie, the stunning new waitress at the town diner.

Managing to wrangle permission from Garrick to photograph his land, Danny finds himself returning to the scene of the central tragedy of his life, and a painful unspoken secret. But secrets link to secrets, and in trying to confront his own past Danny will stir up memories those around him would prefer stay buried.

As captivating as a love song, as intricate as a fugue, Jan Cheripko’s stunning novel will enthrall from its opening note to its final, heart-wrenching chords.

Listen to samples from this audiobook:
Sample 1Ice. Author Jan Cheripko wrote the opening pages of the book as a kind of prose poem, describing the icy world that sets the tone for Danny's story. (2:27, about 2.8)
Sample 2Benji and Danny turn to Ruthie for help dealing with the aftermath of their struggle. (2:50, about 3.3)

"Jan Cheripko's novel blends routine occurrences such as death, romance, and soul-searching into a wonderful, heart-wrenching story filled with tragedy and the search for meaning in one's life. . . . The full cast narration is excellent."
    — School Library Journal August, 2008
"Murphy's well-placed inflections and tones meticulously convey Danny's emotions and angst. The other readers in this full-cast ensemble capture the essence of the characters through consistent and expressive readings. David Baker is particularly noteworthy in his voicing of good-hearted though flawed Benji Samuels . . . The background music is a haunting, subtle enhancement, never disrupting the flow of the narrative."
    — Booklist June, 2008   Starred Review
"The prose is poetic, and the cast does a professional job of breathing life into the story. Spencer Murphy is believable as Danny, a young man on the verge of adulthood who is wrestling with grief, guilt, and God. Carmen Viviano Craft also gives an outstanding performance as Stephanie, a waitress with a past who catches Danny's eye. Musician Todd Hoban enhances the atmosphere with Bach, Sibelius, and some original keyboard work."
