One of America's most powerful and thought-provoking novelists, New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult brilliantly examines belief, miracles, and the complex core of family.

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.

Topics: Family, Kansas City, Suspenseful, Divorce, Miracles, Mothers and Daughters, Spirituality , Supernatural Powers, Possessed, and Catholicism

Finished reading last night. I liked this book. Very interesting subject. Maybe the book could have been a bit shorter and it would have been better but all in all a very good read.

Keeping Faith. Jodie Picoult. 2010. This must have been a good deal on the Kindle because I usually like to read hard copies of Picoult so I can share with friends. This book is as readable and suspenseful as the other Picoult novels I’ve read. Mariah White and and her daughter Faith come home early and find her husband with another woman. Mariah quickly divorces her husband. Shortly after Faith who has had no religious training whatsoever starts seeing the Virgin Mary, healing people and develops stigmata! The media discovers Faith and life becomes a nightmare. A rabbi, a Catholic priest and a con man who has become famous debunking all things religious try to determine if Faith is imagining her visions or if they are real.more
This personally is my favorite book by Jodi Picoult. I'm an atheist but I did still enjoy reading this novel. I think it sends an important message. I never know how much to write in my reviews just in case people haven't read it yet, I don't want to give too much away. I like the concept of the book and I'd say it is worth the read.more
I have heard a lot of reviewers pan Jodi Picoult because all her books are similar or because she manipulates the readers. While that isn't totally off base, I still enjoy her writing and don't mind being manipulated a little for the sake of a good plot! Keeping Faith was one of her better books in my opinion. The plot centers around a 7 year old girl who begins having visions of God after her parents divorce. Some of the secondary characters were a bit two dimensional but the main characters, especially Faith herself, were intriguing and well developed. As in many of Picoult's books you are forced to think about issues in shades of grey instead of black and white. This joins my top three Jodi Picoult books along with My Sister's Keeper and The Pact.more

did not find it compelling nor interesting. it was the soapy elements and the whiney mother that did not do it, at least not for me. besides, religious dilemma was never an issue for me, and - unexplained miracles only seem to exist until we can explain them.more
Interesting discussion of theology and spirituality in this novel. However, I still don't like Picoult's prose.more
