Ugh!! I finished this last night because I couldn't bear to spend another day of my life with this in my purse. So why did I read it? For the same reason that many young women read books they might not be thrilled with... I had to read it for my book club (...which normally picks much more intelligent and interesting books). As I mentioned to the person selecting the book when she solicited comments about her short list of options, I've never been tempted to read a Picoult book. I doubt ...more

The story is a bit formulaic as most Jodi Picoult books are but sometimes that makes for comfort reading.
The story: Seven-year-old Faith is caught in the middle of her parents crumbling marriage and in much need of a friend to confide in. That is when her imaginary friend steps in. Not long after, miracles start to occur around Faith, and her mother starts to realize that Faith is not only speaking to "God", but that her God is a woman. And then the media and church gets wind of this…

Jodi picoult never ceases to grasp my complete attention with her writing and this book was no exception. She writes with such passion and knowledge about her subjects you can't help but praise her for all the research she has done even if you don't agree with the subject matter.
Keeping faith will evoke many feelings some of which are anger, passion, love, respect, frustration, and pure joy. These are just a few.

Well, Miss Picoult, I hope you will waste the next few hours of your life. And by this, I do not dare instill the idea that Keeping Fate is a complete and utter waste of time, just that time would somehow prefer a more pleasant way of being spent.

I started reading some of Jodi Picoult's books and I must say, I'm loving it. I love Keeping Faith and I love how I always can relate to a book that I choose. Keeping Faith is about broken marriage. When I started reading this book, all I could think about is my family. What if I had to go through broken marriage of my parents? In this book, it's like one of those book that gives you a slap in the face; realizing that when it comes to broken marriage, we should never dwell on it ...more
"Let me tell you what you feel like when you know you are ready to die.
You sleep a lot, and when you wake up the very first thought in your head is that you wish you could go back to bed.
You go entire days without eating, because food is a commodity that keeps you here.
You read the same page a hundred times.
You rewind your life like a videocassette and see the things that make you weep, things that make you pause, but nothing that makes you want to play i ...more
I enjoyed 'Change of Heart' better than this one. This novel does not even bother to explain Faith's vision, and I am still confused whether I should believe Faith or not.
Even though the court scene is brilliant, I find Jodi Picoult's writing style for this book is exhaustive and repetitive.
