Faith by Jennifer Haigh

4.0 out of 5 stars - Pertinent and discussion-worthy...

Sheila's beloved brother, Art, a much-respected Catholic priest, is accused of abusing a boy whom he had taken under his wing. Although she believes that he can't possibly be guilty of the charges against him, she has doubts when he refuses to defend himself and answer the many questions she has.

Sheila's parents and her other brother, Mike, are staunch Irish Catholics who are blindsided and humiliated by the outpouring of anger against their family and try to find some explanation for how and why this has happened.

A great family story -- love, redemption, sacrifice -- and much to discuss considering the current state of this topic in the news today.
