Synopsis

On 10th August 2000, David and Kim Fleming lost their son, Noah, during childbirth. After his funeral, a rainbow appeared in the sky over the Flemings' home. The family latched onto that symbol of hope and made it the driving force for their recover. A year and ten days later, the daughter Ally Hope was born. This book, written in the unique narrative style Fleming crafted during his ten years at ESPN and "Sports Illustrated", is a father's memoir of the emotional journey from the death of his son to the birth of his daughter. It is real and raw, but above all - redemptive. Although it opens with the harrowing tale of losing a child, the book is more about hope than death, more about what was learned than what was lost. For other grieving parents, and fathers in particular, this book will show that, while the death of a child will change your life forever, it doesn't have to ruin it. As it unfolds, "Noah's Rainbow" also becomes something of a love story, recounting the way the Flemings worked through this tragedy as a team, knowing that how they responded to Noah's death would be their son's only legacy.

This book details exactly how they managed to do it: how they survived and grieved for their son, what they learned about themselves, their families and the world at large, the setbacks and the blessings, the daily gifts of hope, the restoration of their faith, the perpetuation of Noah's spirit, and, ultimately, the peace and strength that sustained them as they prepared for the birth of their second child. This book is for parents who are grieving the death of a child and is particularly geared towards fathers. The scope of the book, however, is broad enough to appeal to anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one or who cares about someone who is grieving. It will also serve anyone searching for perspective or hope in life. It's a book a father would fell good about recommending to another father.
