"Faithful" by Kim Cash Tate - Book Review
From the first page till the last, this story gripped me. The story is told in such a way that the characters come to life on the page. It is so realistically told that the reader can relate on a number of levels. Situations that are portrayed are like many of us experience amongstour friendships and family relationships. I liked the way in which the author presented truth without coming across as "preachy" or simplistic. Struggle is involved as characters wrestle with their various issues. Although the subject matter is heavy, Kim writes in a way that appeals, injecting just enough humor to relieve some of the tension. I feel that this book would be anexcellent choice for a book club. Discussion questions are included.
