When I Found You - Book Club Book


When Nathan McCann discovers a newborn baby boy half buried in the woods, he assumes he's found a tiny dead body. But then the baby moves and in one remarkable moment, Nathan's life is changed forever.

The baby is sent to grow up with his grandmother, but Nathan can't forget him and is compelled to pay her a visit. He asks for one simple promise - that one day she will introduce the boy to Nathan and tell him, 'This is the man who found you in the woods.'

Years pass and Nathan assumes that the old lady has not kept her promise, until one day an angry, troubled boy arrives on his doorstep with a suitcase . . .

Book club selected this book for the month of November. not my choice, but after reading it, I'm glad I did. 

On a cool, crisp fall morning Nathan and Sadie are out hunting ducks. But Sadie wanders off and finds something better than ducks. She finds a small child. From this act alone, Nathan and this child are forever connected with an unbreakable bond. No matter what. Did you read that, no matter what! 

The child is named Nathan, after than man who finds him, but goes by Nat. He is raised by his grandma, who is dreadful. Nat has one constant in his life, the man who found you in the woods, remembers his birthday and Christmas every year. Time passes and like any other youth Nat gets into trouble. His grandma is fed up and hands him over to Nathan. But unlike everyone else Nathan stands beside Nat. He doesn't stand in front of him or behind him. Beside him. Always there to support him. To guide him in life. To show Nat that he matters.

The writing wasn't the strongest and it was an easy read, almost like a high school creative writing project. But still good. It's not so deep and heavy that you won't enjoy it and it's not all light and airy. There are things you have to think about. Thing you need to mull over and figure out. Are the people in your life worth being around and showing that you care and will stick by them, thru thick and thin? 

The characters were ok, typical, but ok. The kid naturally has a chip on his shoulder and is bitter. Nathan is a childless man, who is devoted to the kid and a freaking saint. Grandma is just mean and dreadful, because Nat is a horrible bitter child. Carol, is a rug who hangs around and gets to know Nathan. Why was Carol even still there? That annoyed me. His mom is a horrible person for abandoning him.
