Product Overview

In the spring of 2002, a perfect storm hits Boston: Trusted priests are accused of the worst possible betrayal. "Faith" explores the fallout for one devout family.

Estranged from her family, Sheila McGann returns home when her older brother, Art--a popular pastor--finds himself at the center of the maelstrom. Her strict mother is in a state of angry denial. Sheila''s younger brother, Mike, has convicted his brother in his heart. But most disturbing of all is Art himself, who dodges Sheila''s questions and refuses to defend himself.

As secrets begin to surface, "Faith" explores the corrosive consequences of one family''s history of silence--and the resilience it finds through forgiveness. A suspenseful tale of one woman''s quest for the truth, "Faith" is a haunting meditation on loyalty and family, doubt and belief. Elegantly crafted, sharply observed, this is Jennifer Haigh''s most ambitious novel to date.

Praise
"At its broadest, this is a frank and timely story of familial and institutional heredity; at its most personal, the novel is a devastating portrait of a priest who discovers that he's also a man." (starred review)
"Indelibly rendered characters, suspenseful pacing, and fearless but sensitive handling of a controversial subject will make this a must-read for book discussion groups." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Jennifer Haigh's novel FAITH features a Boston family caught up in the turbulence of the sexual abuse scandals that rocked the Catholic Church, its members, and the community at large. When Arthur McGann, a well-liked pastor at a parish on the metropolitan outskirts, gets named in the spreading outrage, his sister Sheila--who is estranged from her mother and other siblings, as well as from the church--finds herself obligated to stand up for Art, even though he mysteriously refuses to defend himself.
