FAITH was an uplifting read, filled with realistic Christian characters who struggle with truly trusting God in the midst of the trials that come their way (Rape, pregnancy, revenge). Although the focus was on Monet and her husband Marcus' conflict/trial, I would have liked to have read about Monet lifting up her friend Liz's spirits in the midst of her trial. It was a bit one-sided, though I understand that Liz was standing by her best friend, merely reciprocrating what she had done for Liz in ...more

Monet and Marcus Caldwell are a loving couple living the life. She loves her career as a neonatal nurse and he lives for the thrill of being a detective for the Chicago Police Department. They are members of a tight-knit church community and serve God daily in all that they do. They own their home and have wonderful relationships with family and friends. The only regret this happy couple has is that for reasons unknown, in twenty years of marriage, they have been unable to conceive a child.

This was an interesting and very touching novel. It was great from beginning to end. I felt sorry for what happened to Monet and it hurt that Marcus was not by her side but she never lost her Faith..... She put all her trust in God and he stood by her. Great ending glad Marcus finally prayed and asked for forgiveness. ......

This book is awesome. I would like a continuation of this book. I really really enjoyed the writing, and details in this author's book. More about Marus,Monet and baby faith. Thanks so much!
I don't read much Christian fiction because I think it can be cheesy, but I enjoyed this book. The characters and their struggles felt very real to me instead of all "everything is part of God's plan so nothing bothers me." The ending is predictable, but there were enough surprises throughout the story to keep me interested. I recommend this for anyone who wants to get a feel for the Christian fiction genre without going through too much preaching.

This book was really good. When Monet was raped, her husband seemed to back away from her and have a problem with it. It seemed he felt like she shouldn't have the baby because he thought she may have been pregnant by the guy who raped her. She decides to keep the baby, not knowing if she is pregnant by the man who raped her or her husband. Really good read. Read: 2010

I'm a fan of Ms. Larks and I have read and enjoyed all her other books but I had trouble getting into this one and could not finish. I found the subject matter very intrugiuning, but I just couldn't get past some of the religious elements that I didn't agree with. I enjoy most Christin Fiction but at times ( like in this one) the "message" became too heavy for me.

I thought the book was a very good read. A book must keep my attention in order for me to continue to read. Monet's faith was a strong part of her fight to keep the child that her husband, Marcus, wanted her to terminate. In my opinion, seeing Monet's strength shows how a strong woman should be.

For me this was a very intense and excellent read. I love my Urban Christian books. I especially love the characters and how they talk to God during the most diffcult stages in there life. There were a lot of very powerful messages through these pages!

Never underestimate the power of prayer. Great read. Marcus had me scared, thinking he had no faith but, like we all know sometimes God has to break us down before he can bring us up. I admire Monet. Her faith is to be commended!
