Saving Cicadas by Nicole Seitz is a delightful story about an unwed Mother of two daughters (one who is a special child with downs syndrome) who finds herself pregnant once again. She decides to take a trip to her past to see if she can find some answers to her current dilemma…...and on the trip she brings along her daughters and her Mom and Dad. The story is full of surprises….just when you think you know what’s going on, everything changes and it’s not the way you thought it was at all. The author keeps you interested and wanting to read more. Every few pages takes a new twist and you find yourself wanting to read just a little bit further to find out where the story is going next.
For a while I did wonder about some of the things the author brought into the story that are not necessarily Biblical, (especially about humans becoming angels after death) but by the end of the book you understand what the author was trying to accomplish with the subject.
The author writes about each of the characters in this story in such a way that you fall in love with each one of them and you find yourself wanting things to work out for the best for each of them. The story is fun and fast-paced and the ending is very surprising, heart-warming, and thought-provoking. I would definitely recommend that you read Saving Cicadas.
