This book started out really slow for me. I had to kind of slog through the first 100 pages or so. It just wasn't grabbing me. Then I stayed up all night reading the rest of it. Figures.

What also figures is that the ending confused me and made me crazy. I realize the author does that to make you interpret it how you will, but in the meantime, those last 2 little paragraphs are driving me crazy even though I finished the book several days ago.

I know what *I* think happened, but after 400+ pages, I want the author to tell me if I'm right or wrong, dag-nab-it! :-)

Another well written book. Good for Ms. Picoult.

Now, write a book with an ending I can understand, you make me feel stupid! ;)

Although I tolerated this Picoult title better than THE TENTH CIRCLE, it was another one that I could have lived without. I just never connected to the characters, and couldn't get involved in the story like I did with MY SISTER'S KEEPER and NINETEEN MINUTES.

I know others have read this book and loved it, and I totally appreciate their opinions! For me, though, this one just wasn't a winner.

She is just incredible. Her books aren't easy to read, but they're not easy to put down either. This one was hard because being about a woman and her little girl, it struck a little too close too home, but it's such an intense book, I couldn't put it down. She puts you through the wringer!

Faith, a child with no religious background, begins to hear divine voices, starts recitating biblical passages, and develops stigmata. All this starts happening after a rapid divorce between her parents. A custody battle insues and what little stability the family has left is threatened.

A good, interesting book. I was especially intriqued by the ending.
