Parenthood

Got a book recommendation for you.

It was an impulse buy in an airport bookstore.  But Amazon.com recommended it to me a few weeks later…

So obviously it was a good choice.

defending jacobIn Defending Jacob, Assistant District Attorney Andy Barber is a pillar of the community.  He’s happily married to Laurie with a teenage son named Jacob.

Life is good.

Then one of his son’s classmates is murdered, and Jacob is the prime suspect.

Regardless of the mounting evidence, Andy’s belief in his son’s innocence cannot be shaken.  I found his blind faith at the same time completely believable and infuriating.

Andy and his wife come to realize they don’t know their son.  Laurie and Jacob don’t know everything about Andy, either.  It is an unpredictable and heartbreaking story…

Expertly told.

  1. I read this book in between Book Club books, thinking it would be a good “candy” book. It was so much more! I loved it. I wish I had chosen it for Book Club because there is so much that could be discussed.

  2. This book was recommended to me awhile back and I never got around to it. I’m going with your recommendation and I’ve downloaded it to my Nook. Now to find the time to read it! 🙂
