Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times Number One Best Seller

When Mariah White catches her husband with another woman, her life starts to fall apart. And when her daughter, Faith, begins to confide in an imaginary friend, Mariah's own brush with insanity starts to take on a darker meaning.

Then Faith appears to start performing miracles, and all at once the situation is spiralling beyond Mariah's control. Is Faith truly seeing God? Or is she just a troubled young girl seeking refuge from her parents' divorce?

When it comes to matters of faith, it's hard to know who to believe....

Critic Reviews

"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)

A gorgeous book.

I really loved this story despite not usually being a fan of the fiction-meets-religion genre.

There were lots of surprises that had me smiling and wanting more!

The narrator was a little hard to get used to at first but did improve, finally leaving pauses between chapters and character changes towards the end.

Well worth listening too.

keeping faith

This is a very interesting and well written book but the recording is appalling. The actress reads in a monotone, there is not much difference between the voices, just a non ending drone. What is more, there is absolutely no pause between paragraphs, so one strand of the story blends into another and sometimes I have just lost the tread as i thought one character was speaking when the story had jumped on to another!!! hard to follow and not so relaxing.

could have been done better

I love Jodi Picoult and her stories, and I loved reading this one on paper, however the narrator was very very quiet throughout the whole book and there didn't seem to be any pause between a change of scenes in the book.
I know that this isn't necessarily the narrator's fault, however it made it very confusing. I feel like there could have been a better job done.
