I have probably listened to or read worse books but can't remember when. Don't bother buying it regardless at how low audible takes the price.

Mariah could give us all hope that we can be stronger than we think, wiser than might have been expected and more generous than is deserved. As the leading character in Keeping Faith, I found her to be interesting and learning more about her and her daughter Faith kept me listening. Religion has always been a bit of a mystery to me and listening to how miracles might be examined from a number of different perspectives was an interesting thought examination. I enjoyed the book very much and will probably listen to the author again.

Catherine "Cat" Ferry is a forensic odontologist, a specialist in bite marks and the clues they provide. But while Cat's colleagues know her as a world-class scientist, she secretly attempts to manage her fragile psyche with alcohol, delving into the minds of rapists and murderers yet never allowing her own frightening past to creep into the foreground.

I got so involved in listening to this book I got out of my car while listening and went off and left it running! I loved this book. Cat is a flawed woman who many of us will relate to. Though she lives with issues that could be crippling to some (alcoholic and bi-polar) she has incredible strength to live her life intelligently and with courage. Though the story line is a nail-biter the real lesson for me was that if we can honestly evaluate our own condition and fully understand how it affects our emotional responses and our situational reactions we can function in a positive and at times heroic way. One of the previous reviewers was critical of the reader, and I couldn't disagree more. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the reading of it.
