    " At first I thought this story would just be about a Catholic priest who was accused of child molestation. However, Haigh is such a gifted writer, giving historical background, character development and a great plot to show how one's faith can come into question when confronted with certain circumstances. The story is narrated by the priest's half sister and examines the actions and points of view of each family member. "

    " This book caught my eye because the main theme revolved around the catholic church scandal of priests being accused of child molestation. Light topic huh?! I was apprehensive in the beginning, worried about what route they were going to take. In the end though, I really like the way she told the story, one that was probably all to common during this social period. Without giving too much away, I will just say that I think she did a wonderful job of giving the whole story. I strongly believe it is so important to look at all sides of an event, it can be so easy to read a headline and demonize someone, but there is always something human and relatable behind every hurtful act (weather a true accusation or not!). "

    " Very engaging as a step above a beach read, but possibly also enjoyed it since it's set locally and the church abuse scandal played a significant role in my graduate studies (they happened simultaneously). Haigh creates likable characters whose stories you begin to care about. My biggest complaint about Faith was the ending, which felt more like an afterthought. All in all, a nice weekend read, especially for Catholics. "

    " I wouldn't necessarily recommend Faith, but I didn't entirely not like it (wow, that's a poorly written sentence!). It's the story of an Irish Catholic family embroiled in an accusation of pedophilia. The narrator's brother is a priest and he has been accused of molesting a young boy. She is trying to make sense of her family, its dynamics and what to believe about her brother. Not sure what exactly I didn't like about the book, and I did want to finish it, but I guess it just didn't speak to me. Wonder what you think. "

    " I love everything that Jennifer Haigh has written. In her latest novel, she tells the story of Father Art, who has been accused of abusing a young boy, and the reaction of his extended family. Set in the south suburbs of Boston, there are many unexpected twists and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/11/2014

    " This book was intense. Amazingly written and impossible to put down. But its topic matter is disturbing, so be forewarned. It addresses the improprieties of the Catholic church and sexual abuse by priests, specifically a priest charged with such abuse. It is a heart-rending read on many different levels, because it gives the reader and perspective from the different family and community members. So be prepared for an amazing, challenging, roller-coaster ride of a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/4/2014

    " Not a subject I thought I wanted to read more about . . . but this story is so well told and offers such a different slant on that subject. Really masterful; impossible to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 12/17/2013

    " Excellent though sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara | 12/5/2013

    " It was an interesting concept but not sure I liked reading from the perspective of the sister. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 12/1/2013

    " I liked it. It makes you think about all the accused priests and if they really were . . . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/30/2013

    " In 2002, Father Art Breen is accused of molesting a young boy in his parish. His diocese, Boston, doesn't bother to investigate the charges, choosing instead to make an example of him. The novel explores how this affected his whole family. Good Book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 11/21/2013

    " she put some interesting twists on an otherwise predictable story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenifer | 11/20/2013

    " One of the better books I have read lately. Haigh does an excellent job of spinning a story full of emotion and even surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 11/15/2013

    " I thought this started off slow, in fact I doubted that I would get through it at all. But at some point, I realized I was halfway through and couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari Hansen | 11/12/2013

    " I wasn't sure halfway through if I should finish this as Haigh does a good job of the narrator holding back and waffling back and forth about the innocence or guilt of the priest. I was glad I read it in the end, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it. A spider web of a story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/9/2013

    " Interesting and easy read that had me questioning faith. My only complaint would be that the author constantly teases and hints at the backstory but doesn't provide answers until much later in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krod1773 | 10/20/2013

    " loved this book, makes you think about how loyal you would be in this situation "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candyce Ragan | 9/26/2013

    " This author is great. I love her books. This was not exception. Although I was a little leery about the subject matter, it turned out to be a interesting read with suspense and surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 9/20/2013

    " A priest is accused of child molestation, and his sister reveals the family's dysfunctional history. Obtrusive narrative voice. Depressing story, though well-crafted. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thenareading | 9/4/2013

    " To me, this book was a snoozer. It was wordy, jumped around and completely failed to be of any interest. I was disappointed to say the least, as I was pretty excited to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Deboskey | 6/12/2013

    " Well written and hard to put down. A sad story but really well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 5/10/2013

    " An outstanding look at the Catholic priesthood, written extremely well,brilliant use of a horrible crime to examine the lives of a Priest and his family. Especially revelatory to Roman Catholics, I think, but a read that gives pause to all readers. Check it out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tray | 3/30/2013

    " I must read for Brad. This book is so Catholic upbringing that you will know you are not Catholic enough~ It's at the OPL, new book shelf~ "
