Jodi Picoult - Keeping Faith

 

Courtesy of Amazon:-

 

Synopsis

Hot on the heels of her Richard & Judy smash-hit "My Sister's Keeper", Jodi Picoult's latest drama tells the compelling story of an ordinary little girl with an extraordinary gift, who finds herself at the centre of a huge media controversy. 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. What are you willing to believe? 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 reclaim the attention her unfaithful husband withheld?

 

I quite enjoyed this book, I felt that it was one of Jodi's lighter books making it pleasant to read and easy to follow late into the night

 

9/10

Waterstones had this one for half price, when it came out in January.

 

I noticed on Amazon that there are more planned for publishing over here but no date yet :reading:

It's our Reading Circle book right now, but discussions keep going. So once you've read it, please come back and let us know what you thought.

 

Welcome to the forum, btw - I hope you stay, and please contact me if you have any problems.

I must admit My Sisters Keeper is still by far the best, it reduced me to tears. The others aren't far behind though, such as The Pact, another great read.

It took me longer to get hooked on The Tenth Circle then the rest of her books, but I am enjoying it to the point where I have hidden myself away in my bedroom to read it, leaving the hubby to deal with the kids ~ well it is the day of rest afterall :wink:
