When I Found You | [Catherine Ryan Hyde]

When I Found You

Nathan McCann thought he didn't want a family. But when he finds an abandoned newborn in the woods, he feels an inexplicable bond with the boy and starts to make plans to raise the child as his own - until the baby's grandmother steps forward to claim him. Nathan makes a request of her, though: to one day bring the boy to meet his rescuer.

Publisher's Summary

"What do I have to do to make you wash your hands of me? There's nothing you could do. I will never wash my hands of you."

Nathan McCann thought he didn't want a family. But when he finds an abandoned newborn in the woods, he feels an inexplicable bond with the boy and starts to make plans to raise the child as his own - until the baby's grandmother steps forward to claim him. Nathan makes a request of her, though: to one day bring the boy to meet his rescuer.

Fifteen years later, Nathan gets his wish when the boy and his grandmother show up on his doorstep. Named Nat and now an angry teenager with a criminal record, the boy is once again in need of rescuing. Nathan takes Nat in, swearing to never abandon him. Nathan believes that with love and patience anyone can change. And he just might be right.

From the author of Pay It Forward comes a poignant tale of love, pain, and trusting people to stay by your side in a world where leaving is easy.

    "Like Really...."
    Would you try another book from Catherine Ryan Hyde and/or Jeff Cummings?

    I would try a book from Jeff Cummings but from Ms. Catherine Ryan Hyde I doubt if I would read another book. Unless the title again sound good I may give it a try.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    none

    "Cool story"

    this book was a lot different from what I was expecting

    Nat was an obnoxious twit, who only thought of himself

    I really enjoyed the book even though at times I wanted to yell at Nat

    "Nat short for Nathan"

    Loved this story. It was very heartwarming and good to read about people out there willing to take complete people in and take care of them even if they aren't blood relation. This book did meet my expectations. A very good book to pick.

    "a sweet read"

    i didn't love this book but it kept my attention and i wanted to finish it. The father figure was a tad unbelievable in that he never faltered. The other characters were very credible.
