What’s It About?

“You stole my life. You hurt my kids. You stole my family. No more.”

Dawn, a Christian woman, made vows to her husband to never leave his side, no matter what. Those vows are tested when he is hauled off to jail, for a second time, on account of abusing their toddler son.

Dawn has to make a decision: To protect her son, or to save her marriage. This decision overwhelms her. Why does she have to choose? Don’t the case-workers, Judge, and the media understand that it was just an accident?

Wave to Papa, a psychological suspense, is told in multiple perspectives, from the mother and the father, maternal grandmother, judge, caseworkers, eldest daughter, and the eldest daughter’s foster mother, centralizing on toddler Noah.

My Thoughts

Author Erin Lee works as both a therapist, and court-appointed special children’s advocate, giving her an advantage in writing a novel about child abuse, and the Department of Children, Youth, and Family. Within the novel are realistic-looking case documents, referring to Noah, giving this book a non-fiction feel. At times I had to remind myself that this was just a story.

We are first introduced to Dawn, and through media questions on the court house steps, we learn a lot about her back-story. I thought this was an excellent way to start the book, because it presented her background in an interesting, exciting way.

Each chapter changed into a new character’s perspective. We meet Dan, the father, and realize he never had a chance to be a good Dad, even if he wanted to be. Addicted to Oxycontin, growing up with an abusive father himself, and the cherry on top, explosive anger problems, all contributed to his poor treatment of his son, Noah.

This is a dark and powerful, yet inspiring story about a woman who must choose between the husband she gave her vows to and the son she is supposed to, by nature, love and protect. First of all, the author gives us a glimpse of every side of the story which I found enthralling and admirable. The writing was beautiful and the plot carefully constructed. There were moments when I wanted to laugh, cry, cringe, and get angry. I was definitely emotionally swept up in this story. At the center of the story is this sweet little boy named Noah. Not only is he at the center, but he has the least control of the situation while at the same time being affected the most by it. This book also offers a grim perspective on the foster care system. I loved the ending and how she brought it all together. Overall, the story was amazing and the writing superb. I'm interested now to check out this author's other titles!!

‘Wave to Papa’ is author Erin Lee’s second novel and it is so different from her first novel that I was completely blown away. I have never read a novel where a young protagonist molds an entire story just by existing. This work delves into the dark side of the foster care system and shows you the points of view of the judges, the lawyers, the child advocates, the parents, and the siblings and family of the abused. I don’t know how she did it, but she hit a homerun again while not being pigeon-holed into the chick-lit/comedy spectrum. Well done.

This book made me cry several times because I got so much into the characters. I felt Dawn's pain in the decisions she had to make not only for Noah but for her teen aged daughter, too. I have no use for Dan, but his background fleshes him out to be a victim in his childhood, too. That's what I like best is that the characters are multi-faceted.
There's so much to consider here. Having some suggested group discussion questions is a great addition because this book would be a good choice for groups that would like to use this as a book discussion selection.
I also read Erin Lee's Crazy Like Me book, but this is a very different style. I enjoyed each. The first was a light read that gave a fun and thoughtful insight into the life of a therapist and her clients. This Wave to Papa gave me a very personal look at the reality of situations that are all too common. I strongly recommend you give it a read.

Erin Lee has written a book that not only makes you feel..but connects you to a cast of characters that is rare in this day and age. It has been a while since I have picked up a book as good as this one!

Wave To Papa tells an incredibly difficult and hard to read without crying story bout the aftermath of child abuse. We see the struggles of a mother, trying to put her family back together after her husband abuse their toddler son.

This story is real!!! It forces the question, what would you do in Dawn's shoes. It is so easy to judge...but even harder to sympathize and understand. I am so thankful for the chance to read this amazing book and now other readers will love it as well!!!

Dawn is a christian woman taught the age old lesson- stand by your man no matter what. So when it comes to protecting her child or standing by her husband she is torn, her faith and vows are put to the test.
This is just a story but it is very much based on reality. A very sad reality for many kids. I enjoyed this story, it tugged at my heart and in places made me cry and in others made me so mad I wanted to close my kindle!
I would definitely recommend this story it is well worth the read!
