Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed This is my first Jodi Picoult book and I had heard amazing things from family and friends that have read her books. I must say I am a little disappointed. I found there was a lot of nonsense information that did not add anything valuable to this book. I do love the idea of the story, but it really dragged on and on and on. She did a great job describing the characters and their quirks, but it was a little too boring for me. Needless to say I will not be reading any other books by Jodi...sorry this one kinda ruined it for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Story This is my first book by Jodi Picoult that I have read and was impressed by her writing and of course the storyline. Religion isn't the issue I believe but of a mother's love for her daughter to shield her from all the media. The battle between the two lawyers in court really had me hooked I could not put this book down and wanted to know the out come right away. Certainly I will look into reading another Jodi Picoult novel sometime soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great!! When I first got this book, I wasn't really sure what I'd think of it. A little girl starts seeing God after her parents get a divorce. I'm not a huge believer of God, so I had mixed feelings about reading this book. However I have just finished reading My Sister's Keeper, also by Jodi Picoult, and I LOVED it, so I thought I'd try this novel of her's. She's a great author so I decided to give this novel a chance. I'm so happy I did! This is a great Story! Currently it is one of my favorites! I would recommend this novel to anyone, whether you believe in God or not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not one of her best novels! I am a very big fan of Jodi Picoult...and it saddened me to say that this is not one of her best novels.Faith, a seven year old little girl and her mother, walk in on her father with another woman. Shortly after, Faith, having to deal with her parents' divorce, develops stigmata and claims her imaginary friend is God. I am a very religious person myself, having been raised in the Orthodox faith. I was however unable to connect to the whole issue of stigmata, which is a touchy topic to address. I do however have to admit, if anything Picoult is simply trying to remind us that we all need something to believe in....For that reminder, I thank her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thought-provoking and touching. Keeping Faith is officially my favourite novel by Picoult. The story really made me think and wonder about God. I devolped an emotional attachment to the characters, particularily Mariah. She was very real and quite believable. It breaks the perfectly happy Mum stereotype while still leaving you knowing how much Mariah loves Faith. Well done!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well written, but... I have read many books by this author, and although my favourite is still My Sister's Keeper, I enjoyed this one very much. The story was riveting, the character portrayals deep and insightful as I have come to expect of Ms. Picoult. The courtroom drama had me on the edge of my seat, flying through the pages as fast as I could. I found the first person telling by Mariah to be very moving, and only wish that Jodi Picoult would have told the story as she did in My Sister's Keeper, with the story being presented in the first person by a range of characters. The central issues were compelling, and still have me considering both sides of each individual facet of the story days after I finished. The only thing that kept this from being a truly excellent novel, in my opinion, was the last two paragraphs on the last page. I found the ending deeply disturbing, and the foreshadowing of what may happen with Faith completely overshadowed the rest of this very well written book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Picoult At Her Best As with most Picoult reads, i liked this book. I liked the concept of healing, of god speaking in ways not expected. Picoult always manages to get into the minds and hearts of all her characters so that each one stands out from the rest instead of fading together as so many characters do in other books. I'll keep reading Picoult books if she can continue writing them as well as this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Torn Although I did enjoy reading this book, there were several parts where I did find myself bored. First off it took me about 50 pages in before I found myself truly getting into this story. Then about 1/2 through the book I once again started to bore with it. Alot of religous references and what not. It was almost like I needed more of a plot to keep me interested in it. Towards the end I found myself getting wrapped back up into it, of course at this point the court proceedings were taking place which kept my interest. I very last page of this book has my confused. I have read it, and re read it over and over again. I am not sure of what the meaning of it is meant to be? All in all, i dont beleive it was one of her best books, But did still enjoy it.
