Keeping Faith

by Jodi Picoult

Category: Fiction / P - R
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton General Division

Description:
For the second time in her marriage, Mariah White catches her husband with another woman, and Faith, their seven-year-old daughter, witnesses every painful minute. In the aftermath of a sudden divorce, Mariah struggles with depression and Faith begins to confide in an imaginary friend. At first, Mariah dismisses these exchanges as a child's imagination. But when Faith starts reciting passages from the Bible, develops stigmata, and begins to perform miraculous healings, Mariah wonders if her daughter -- a girl with no religious background -- might indeed be seeing God. As word spreads and controversy heightens, Mariah and Faith are besieged by believers and disbelievers alike, caught in a media circus that threatens what little stability they have left. Is Faith a prophet or a troubled little girl? Is Mariah a good mother facing an impossible crisis -- or a charlatan using her daughter to get attention?

What the papers say:
"* 'Jodi Picoult's novels often focus on lives turned upside down by some terrible event, and it's her way with the small emotional detail that makes them so rewarding.' - Marie Claire * 'Another fascinating and engrossing read by Picoult' - Closer * 'Picoult fans will not be disappointed. There is the usual compulsive writing, the insight into family and colourful characterisation... a pleasure to pick up, and impossible to put down' - Daily Express"
