faith

In the great bookshelf purge of the past few years (21 books left until there are none!), I came across faith by Jennifer Haigh. When I went to look it up on Amazon, it turns out I also own the Kindle version. That’s pretty sad. In any event, even with a slow start, I very much enjoyed this sad read. “When Sheila McGann sets out to redeem her disgraced brother, a once-beloved Catholic priest in suburban Boston, her quest will force her to confront cataclysmic truths about her fractured Irish-American family, her beliefs, and, ultimately, herself. Award-winning author Jennifer Haigh follows her critically acclaimed novels Mrs. Kimble and The Condition with a captivating, vividly rendered portrait of fraying family ties, and the trials of belief and devotion, in Faith.” (Amazon) I have mixed feelings about Haigh’s books and this was a better one.

  1. I love love love JH. Which ones didn’t you like? She has a new one out this month. I haven’t started it yet – supposed to be very heavy.

  2. I didn’t like Heat and Light much. I did like Mrs. Kimble, though! I think I also read Baker Towers and liked it, but it was before I kept my blog, so I can’t really remember.
