Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Both riveting and profound. . . . An incredibly suspenseful novel.” - Washington Post

“A masterpiece of tension and tenderness.” - More magazine

“Luminous. . . . The novel has the magnetic, page-turning quality of a detective thriller, but the clues here lead not to objective proof but to insight into a family both vividly specific and astonishingly universal. . . . . Wise.” - O magazine

“Haigh deals with complex moral issues in subtle ways, and her narrative is beautifully, sometimes achingly poignant.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“With an exquisite sense of drama and mystery, Haigh delivers a taut, well-crafted tale. . . . Indelibly rendered characters, suspenseful pacing, and fearless but sensitive handling of a controversial subject will make this a must-read for book discussion groups.” - Booklist (starred review)

“Haigh’s fourth novel draws you in. . . . You’ll be hypnotized until you know where it stops.” - Self

“FAITH is so emotionally rich, and its story so deftly delivered, that we’re absorbed.” - Wall Street Journal

“Expertly wrought. . . . Ms. Haigh, a subtle, serious novelist who happens to have a flair for capturing troubled family dynamics, never allows FAITH to become predictable. . . . Gripping. . . . Substantial.” - New York Times
