SUMMARY Ê SJMEDIA.CO ¹ Lindsay Starck CHARACTERS ñ Noahs Wife Mary McGarry Morris says it best “ Noah’s Wife may be a contemporary allegory but Lindsay Starck is a classic storytellerher novel is an engrossing fusion of wisdom and beautiful writing” Noah’s Wife is a gorgeously written brilliantly introspective fable like novel Noah’s Wife is a story of a community battered by a relentless downpour from the heavens a gray and wet little town teeming with eccentric characters who have learned to endure the extraordinary circumstances of the rain with astonishing human fortitude and. Noah s Wife is a phenomenally good book one of the most rewarding first novels I ve read in years On the surface it s a retelling with broad license of the Noahflood story set in a small mountain town where the rains have not stopped for so long that the inhabitants have forgotten when it started raining The town is celebrated for its zoo and when the zoo floods the townspeople must confront the challenge of rescuing its animals So that s the plot or less But this is not a plot novel any than it is Christian fiction which some reviewers have discovered to their chagrin rather its a deep philosophical investigation of marriage relationships and the nature of human connection At the core of the novel are the magnetic forces often intangible that keep the various couples in the town including Pastor Noah and his wife together The prose is pellucid as a mountain stream sharp and lyrical The characters are vivid original and yet highly recognizable Starck took me on a fantastic journey and I wish it hadn t had to end As literary fiction goes it doesn t get much better than this The Longevity Diet: Discover the New Science Behind Stem Cell Activation and Regeneration to Slow Aging, Fight Disease, and Optimize Weight journey and I wish it hadn t had to end As literary fiction goes it doesn t get much better than this

READ Noahs Wife

SUMMARY Ê SJMEDIA.CO ¹ Lindsay Starck CHARACTERS ñ Noahs Wife Cores of wild animals out of the once renowned zoo And so Noah his wife and the townspeople must confront the savage forces of nature and attempt to reinforce the fragile ties that bind them to each other before their world is washed awayFull of whimsy and gentle ironic humor Noah’s Wife is a wise and poignant novel that draws upon the motifs of the biblical flood story to explore the true meaning of community to examine the remarkable strength of the human spirit and to ask whether hope can exist even where faith has been los. Lindsay Starck s debut novel is a loose retelling of the Biblical story of Noah s Ark The main points carried over into Noah s Wife is that there is man named Noah whose purpose is to save and there are animals so if you aren t terribly familiar with the Biblical story you still know enoughExcerpt of my reviewYou learn each character so well that before you know it you have the backstory and future dreams of many people causing you to feel like you re part of the town and these are your neighborsGetting to know a bunch of characters isn t enough though there has to be a deeper message in a novel especially one that is almost 400 pages A few messages I got from Lindsay Starck s book is that love is an abstract concept and people s definitions vary much than I had personally thought To Mrs McGinn love like beauty is not painless For Dr Yu Noah s wife s best friend love means that the ones we love never find mates that we feel are good enough for them For Leesl love means not being with the one she loves and instead yearning For Mrs McGinn s daughter who has witnessed her mother s many divorces love means monogamy and she tells her fiance the zookeeper to list off the animals that mate for life in what almost sounds like verbal foreplayFull review at Grab the Lapels
