A NovelUnknown - 2016
Noah's Wife is the 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 willfulness. When Noah's wife arrives with her minister husband to a small coastal town in the Pacific Northwest, she is driven by her desire to help revive the congregation, but finds herself thwarted by the resistance of her eccentric new neighbors and her failure to realize that her husband is battling his own internal crisis. As Noah and his wife strive to bring the townspeople to the church-and keep the strains on their marriage at bay-the rain intensifies, impeding their efforts. Soon the river waters rise, flooding the streets of the town and driving scores of wild animals out of the once-renowned zoo. 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 away. Full 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, examine the remarkable strength of the human spirit, and ask whether hope can exist even where faith has been lost.
