Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the marriage of Mariah White and her cheating husband, Colin, turns ugly and disintegrates, their seven-year-old daughter, Faith, is there to witness it all. In the aftermath of a rapid divorce, Mariah falls into a deep depression—and suddenly Faith, a child with no religious background whatsoever, hears divine voices, starts reciting biblical passages, and develops stigmata. And when the miraculous healings begin, mother and daughter are thrust into the volatile center of controversy and into the heat of a custody battle—trapped in a mad media circus that threatens what little stability the family has left.

In Keeping Faith, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult—one of the most powerful writers in contemporary fiction—brilliantly examines belief, miracles, and the complex core of family.

Synopsis:

“A triumph. This novels haunting strength will hold the reader until the very end and make Faith and her story impossible to forget.”
—Richmond Times Dispatch

“Extraordinary.”
—Orlando Sentinel

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult (Nineteen Minutes, Change of Heart, Handle with Care) comes Keeping Faith: an “addictively readable” (Entertainment Weekly) novel that “makes you wonder about God. And that is a rare moment, indeed, in modern fiction” (USA Today).

diane Trafton, November 25, 2012 (view all comments by diane Trafton)
A marriage falling apart, and an extraordinary child, creates a story both a thought provoking and controversial. The child, aptly named "Faith", begins to hear divine voices and develops stigmata, even though never exposed to any organized religion. These strange events thrust the struggling characters into a media frenzy and a very messy custody battle. Typical of Jodi Picoult, the topic is compelling and gripping. This is one of Picoult's best!
