Haigh, Jennifer. Faith: A Novel. New York: Harper, 2011. Print.

I picked up this book because the cover reminded me of Anna Quindlen's tearjerker Every Last One.

Faith made me cry just as hard, and I finished it in one nearly sleepless night.

Here's what the critics had to say about Jennifer Haigh's latest novel:

“Both riveting and profound. . . . An incredibly suspenseful novel.” -Washington Post

"Indelibly rendered characters, suspenseful pacing, and fearless but sensitive handling of a controversial subject will make this a must-read for book discussion groups.” -Booklist (starred review)

“The narrative is emotionally involving and ethically concise, reminding us that things are not always as they seem." - Library Journal
