My book club is starting back in this fall, and this is September's choice. Defending Jacob is about a well known and respected DA and a murder he is investigating that his 14 year old son is eventually charged with. It centers a lot around how the investiation unfolds, the court hearing, and most importantly this small family of the lawyer, his wife, and their son. The book was interesting in many faucets, especially in how the mom and dad react to each new detail they learn about the case and their son, how they treat each other, and where their thoughts go. The ending came quick and and defintely threw me for the unexpected. It made an already good read, that much better. Loved this!
36yr old mom of 2 boys, 8 & 4, wife to John for 13 years, lover of wine, books, mini trips, beaches, kids clothes, and fun with friends. Together we 4 are trying to survive on a self employed finish carpenters salary in Michigan. Good times. If the last decade taught us anything it is to be present in the moment with our kids and our life and value the blessing of each other and sweet time.
