“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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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!!!
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!
