I actually gave up on a Jodi Picoult book. Maybe I'll go back and give it a try again.

Spoiler Alert!!!
The character in this book who is difficult for believers to read about, who had a popular, Televangelist style TV show proving miracles weren’t miracles, appeared again in Jodi's book, "Change of Heart." It turns out he did a complete turn-around in Finding Faith. In fact, he was an expert witness on the validity of miracles and Christianity in the trial phase of "Change of Heart." Both stories are, in a way, about testing faith and belief in miracles.

My second least favorite book from Piccoult. Completely lacked the WOW ending I have come to expect from her.

I really enjoy Jodi P. and this book proved no exception. The question is a universal one...is there a God. I liked the way she kept you wondering and, NO SPOILERS FROM ME. thought the ending was clever.

Long winded - read 1/2 the book and finally gave up. Did not enjoy it too much melodrama and nothing else going on. Somewhat depressing and sad - so I switched to light summer reading and will not finish this read.

Actually, this is one of my favorite Jodi Picoult books. It was very stimulating and I enjoyed the spiritual message. Interesting how Jodi developed the spiritual concept here.
I will read this one again! judehutch

I loved this book, and the way the author explained how Faith was able to talk to God at the end of the story. I recommend this book to the people who suspenseful stories.

One of my favourite authors, but not one of my favourite books by her.
