"It was like driving down a stretch of road so familiar that you arrive home without remembering anything of the journey that got you there." ~ 37%
Claiming Noah is described as a psychological suspense that explores when motherhood and science collide. Catriona and James succeed at last to have a baby through in vitro fertilization. They agree to make their spare frozen embryos available to another family. Diana and Liam are the proud new recipients of the donated embryo.
The mothers are completely different. While Diana is overjoyed by pregnancy, Catriona slips into postpartum depression. Then one of the babies is kidnapped. Suddenly all of their lives are intertwined and unravel together.
The summary sounds very good. I am a sucker of a good psycho suspense book but it has to grab me from the start. Claiming Noah held my interest well enough then came twist after twist. It was good while in the moment reading it, but the type of book that is out-of-hand, out-of-mind. Claiming Noah was soon forgotten once the book was over. I can't explain it any other way.
