When I had my baby shower for my first child, everyone wrote a tip on an index card for me to read later. Most people wrote things like, “sleep when the baby is sleeping”. However, a few people wrote, “love your child unconditionally”. Seems easy enough, right? But what if your child does something so horrific and vile that you can barely look at them? Will you still be able to love your child unconditionally? Saving Noah by Lucinda Berry is a thought provoking novel that will have you questioning yourself from start to finish.

About Saving Noah by Lucinda Berry from Amazon
Meet Noah—an A-honor roll student, award-winning swimmer, and small-town star destined for greatness. There weren’t any signs that something was wrong until the day he confesses to molesting little girls during swim team practice. He’s sentenced to eighteen months in a juvenile sexual rehabilitation center.
His mother, Adrianne, refuses to turn her back on him despite his horrific crimes, but her husband won’t allow Noah back into their home. In a series of shocking and shattering revelations, Adrianne is forced to make the hardest decision of her life. Just how far will she go to protect her son?
Saving Noah challenges everything you think you know about teenage sexual offenders. It will keep you up at night long after you’ve read the last page, questioning beliefs you once thought were true.
Lucinda Berry did an EXCELLENT job grabbing my attention with this book. Her style of writing is such that you feel like you are part of a conversation. For me, personally, I prefer books like that. Those are the books that I have a hard time putting down. Any time I put the book down, I couldn’t stop thinking about the book. Would I be able to love my child if they did something like this? How would I handle this situation? I finished Saving Noah yesterday and this book has been on my mind ever since. The last book to cause me to really think like this was The Shack.
