Lovereading view...As with Jodiâs smash hit â€˜My Sisterâs Keeperâ this is an addictively readable, well crafted and compelling drama which brings to the fore a very topical issue in todayâs troubled world â€“ divorce and its aftermath. The young daughter of the divorced couple confides in an imaginary friend and begins to perform miraculous healings whilst her mother falls, first into depression and then sees an opportunity to exploit her daughter via a media frenzy. Is it to get back at her ex-husband or a genuine cry for attention?
Keeping Faith by Jodi PicoultFor 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 â€“ a girl with no religious background â€“ 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 â€“ or a charlatan using her daughter to reclaim the attention her unfaithful husband withheld?
