I had a hard time about half way through this book and wasn't sure I was going to finish it but I kept slogging through and I'm glad I did! I read in bed last night until I couldn't focus then sat on the couch this morning reading until I finished.
As usual, Picoult weaves an absorbing tale and writes with such gentleness and illumination that I just love swimming in her words.
Faith is seven years old and talks to God. Her parents have just split up and both want custody. That sounds very simplistic but there is so much more to this thought-provoking novel about beliefs. Definitely worth the time to read, even through the middle doldrums.
