This is the overview from Barnes and Noble:
For the second time in her marriage, Mariah White catches her husband with another woman, and Faith, their seven-year-old daughter, witnesses every painful minute. In the aftermath of a sudden divorce, Mariah struggles with depression and Faith seeks solace in a new friend - a friend who may or may not be imaginary. Faith talks to her "Guard" constantly and begins to recite passages from the Bible - a book she's never read. Fearful for her daughter's sanity, Mariah sends her to several psychiatrists. Yet when Faith develops stigmata and begins to perform miraculous healings, Mariah wonders if her daughter - a girl with no religious background - might indeed be seeing God. As word spreads and controversy heightens, Mariah and Faith are besieged by believers and disbelievers alike; they are caught in a media circus that threatens what little stability they have left. What are you willing to believe? Is Faith a prophet or a troubled little girl? Is Mariah a good mother facing an impossible crisis ... or a charlatan using her daughter to reclaim the attention her unfaithful husband withheld? As the story builds to a climactic battle for custody, Mariah must discover that spirit is not necessarily something that comes from religion but from inside oneself.
I got this book from BookBub for only $1.99. Otherwise I don't know if I would have bought it. I like Jodi Picoult and I like her style of writing but I recently finished her newest book Leaving Time. I don't really like to read two books by the same author close together. Do you feel that way as well? Now about Keeping Faith: This book is about a couple who divorce because of his infidelities and the little girl starts seeing and talking with God. Her mother, who has a past of mental health issues, is fighting to keep custody of Faith. Word gets around about Faith, God, and Miracles and their lives get crazy due to all the publicity. It was a good story. A lot of it a bit hard to believe. And I do believe in God! I just don't think things quite work this way. And I HATED how the book ended. But it was a good read. I would recommend it!
