When the marriage of Mariah White and her cheating husband, Colin, turns ugly and disintegrates, their seven-year-old daughter, Faith, is there to witness it all. In the aftermath of a rapid divorce, Mariah falls into a deep depression—and suddenly Faith, a child with no religious background whatsoever, hears divine voices, starts reciting biblical passages, and develops stigmata. And when the miraculous healings begin, mother and daughter are thrust into the volatile center of controversy and into the heat of a custody battle—trapped in a mad media circus that threatens what little stability the family has left. In Keeping Faith, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult—one of the most powerful writers in contemporary fiction—brilliantly examines belief, miracles, and the complex core of family.

I just cannot read this book. I don't like any of the characters and the story does not flow well for me. I'm done with it.
Schon der Schreibstil der Autorin hat mir hier nicht zugesagt. Die Geschichte wird im Präsens erzählt und ich kann nicht genau sagen, warum, aber ich lese lieber in Vergangenheitsform. Dann wechselt Frau Picoult auch noch häufig und ohne für mich ersichtlichen Grund zwischen erster und dritter Perso...
Keeping Faith is primarily a story about a young girl who suddenly starts seeing God and performing miracles. My impression was that readers would be allowed to come to our own conclusions about this (whether it was real, invented by Faith, invented by her mother for attention, etc.), but it doesn't...
