The award-winning author of The Condition and Mrs. Kimble returns with a powerful and affecting drama of faith, doubt and redemption, in which a family is forced to question its own myths, the stories it tells about itself. It is the spring of 2002 and a perfect storm has hit Boston. Across the city’s archdiocese, trusted priests have been accused of the worst possible betrayal of the souls in their care. As the scandal forces long-buried secrets to surface, Faith explores the corrosive consequences of one family’s history of silence—and the resiliency it ultimately finds through forgiveness. Throughout, Haigh demonstrates how our quest for truth can shatter our deepest beliefs—and restore them. A gripping, suspenseful, deeply anguished tale, this is Jennifer Haigh’s most ambitious novel to date.
