Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult
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
I just enjoy Jodi's books so much, I'm now trying to read every single one I can get my hands on. I found this one to be very capturing. It's almost as if God had touched Faith's heart and was trying to help Faith see past other things that were a mess in her life. I found Mariah's husband Colin to be a douche. He cheats on his wife with his mistress in their home. UGH I wanted to smack him. I think this is a book people who are very religious would enjoy curling up to this book.
