Faithful


Alice Hoffman 


ISBN 9781471162930


From the bestselling author of The Dovekeepers and The Marriage of Opposites comes a soul-searching story about a young woman struggling to define herself, and the power of love, family and fate.

Growing up on Long Island, Shelby Richmond is an ordinary girl until one night an extraordinary tragedy changes her life. Her best friend’s future is destroyed in an accident, while Shelby walks away with the burden of guilt.

What happens when a life is turned inside out? Faithful is the story of a survivor, filled with emotion - from dark suffering to true happiness. A fan of Chinese food, dogs, bookshops and men she should stay away from, Shelby has to fight her way back to her own future.
Here is a character to fall in love with, so believable and real and endearing that she captures both the ache of loneliness and the joy of finding oneself at last. For anyone who has been a troubled teenager, for every mother of a daughter who has lost her way, Faithful is the book to turn to.

Hoffman reminds us with every sentence that words have the power to transport us to alternate worlds, to heal a broken heart, and to tie us irrevocably to the
people we love.
