Editorial Reviews


"Noah's Rainbow is David Fleming’s gift to bereaved parents." -- Ken Garfield of The Charlotte Observer

"Noah’s Rainbow is a book both gruesome in its agony, and beautiful in its absolution." -- Chris Sprow of The Chicago Sports Review

"This is an unbelievable book about an unbelievable journey. Trust me, you just have to read this book" -- John Hancock, WBT Radio

If you're a parent who has lost a loved one, this book will help you find that peace. -- Tony Dungy, Head Coach, Indianapolis Colts

marvelous story that will help heal others who think, erroneously, that they can't go on when a child dies. -- Peter King, Senior Writer, Sports Illustrated

From the Publisher

Intended Audience: This book is for parents who are grieving the death of a child, and is particularly geared toward fathers. The scope of the book, however, is broad enough to appeal to anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one or who cares about someone who is grieving. It will also serve anyone searching for perspective or hope in life. It's a book a father would feel good about recommending to another father.

Format: Hardcover
Even as an avid reader, it has been a long time since I picked up a book that I simply couldn't put down until I finished it. Noah's Rainbow was one of these rare books. David Fleming writes with such raw honesty and emotion as to make his journey of faith and fatherhood captivating to any reader. This book is an amazing testimony of how one child's life changed a countless number of lives. The story of the Fleming family's journey through Noah's birth and death is told with skill and sincerity.

The book is a remarkable portrait of hope that will resonate with every reader. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a story of how to find the rainbow through the rain.

When I heard about this book, I knew I wanted to read it. It's been over a year since my niece was stillborn, and this book has made me laugh and cry. When I'm done, I'm sharing it with my sister.

I'd highly recommend it to anyone who has lost a child, or as a gift for anyone who has. It is an uplifting, realistic account.

My husband and I lost our son, our first and only, at 40 weeks to a cord accident. I stumbled upon this book and read it from cover to cover in one sitting. It was so similar to the journey we are currently on, sometimes I marvled atthe words on the page. THis was our story. There wasn't a page I read where the tears, understanding, love, and heartache ceases to flow.

Thank you, Mr Fleming, for writing a book from a father's point of view. It helped me understand my husband's grief and gave me a new understanding of the path we are now on.

Written from the soul of a young Dad who was stunned by what had happened to he and his wife in the matter of an instant when the delivery of their son, baby Noah, at term, went wrong!
As a grandmother who has just experienced this same tragedy alongside my daughter and son-in-law, I found this book touched and helped me significantly.
If you want to know the only way to support a friend or family member who has suffered this experience, please read David's story.
