Book Description

Faith was three the first time her twin sister died.
The second time, she was ten.

Faith and her twin sister depended only on each other, bonding deeply through telepathy in the midst of their tumultuous childhood, but when her twin dies, Faith becomes a shut-in, deciding to ignore the world that seems to have no place for her even as she ignores the odd form and contours of her newly developing body.
Lotte, the mysterious woman who takes over the care of Faith, eventually coerces her back into the world and that is when Faith meets Joe, the proprietor of Jungle Joe’s, who alludes to a peculiar past that includes himself, Lotte, and Faith’s grandparents.
When Faith gets an accidental glimpse her twin sister, her unsteadily assembled world is turned upside down and Faith is forced onto a path to discover where her sister is and in the process finds out just who (and what) she is herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb writing, and an intriguing storyline January 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It's important to say at the outset that isn't a book about religion - which is what I thought when I saw the title. It's actually about a young girl called Faith, and the first part of the book focuses on her early life with her twin sister Charity, flashing between the present and the past - but beautifully done.

The novel starts with a remarkable opening line: "The first time my sister died, we were three years old" and builds steadily and consistently from this point, creating a sad tale of two young girls brought up in an apparently loveless home. It continues until Faith is in her early twenties.
It has a mixture of styles, from heartbreakingly sad to tense and scary, and Christine Dougherty carries them all off well. In places, her writing is superb and her use of imagery excellent. Although it's not the usual action thriller style that is my preference in books, I found it totally compelling.

The plot was intriguing and imaginative. The characters were well-drawn, and some were emotionally complex. Dougherty did an outstanding job of painting a picture of the lives of the twins. It isn't a fast paced plot - but then it's not meant to be. It's a gradually unravelling story, with many hints thrown out about mysteries that are revealed as the book continues, and I couldn't stop reading.

I did feel, though, that there were a number of elements that weren't explained fully by the end of the book. I know there is to be a sequel so perhaps this is intentional. But it did leave me slightly frustrated. I definitely won't introduce any spoilers into my review, but there was an underlying reason why the girls lives were as they were, and I felt that this provided an opportunity for a more sinister feel in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Disturbing Mystery February 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Faith and her twin sister Charity share a bond so profound and irrevocable they communicate with their minds without a word passing between them. They have been raised by their grandparents in a home void of love, kindness and emotional attachment.

School is another disturbing experience for these girls as they are virtually ignored by teachers and students alike. It is as if they don't exist until they suddenly have to deal with a bully who brings their uniqueness to the forefront.

They long for the mother they so desperately want and their only comfort is each other. When Faith loses her twin sister she virtually becomes confined in this sterile home with only herself and her books for companionship. When she gets her first job in a plant nursery and starts to become part of the world around her she is thrown into a past that is inconceivable and a future that she would never have imagined.

The storyline is captivating; the characters are extremely well developed and intricate. Each character is a complex part of the story as it unravels itself through the mysteries that are encountered each step of the way. From the first line of this book I was virtually held hostage until I reached the end. I could not put this book down and when I had to, I could not get it out of my mind. This book has a force that pulls you into the story and envelops you while carrying you forward.

I highly recommend this book to all readers. It is extremely well written with a power that beckons you to keep going.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner! June 24, 2011
By C. Ott
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This thriller did exactly what a thriller should do: my stomach was in knots and I couldn't put the story down until I found out what happened to the characters! The story is well constructed and full of enticing foreshadowing and intrigue. This was my very first Kindle download, and I'm hooked! Hooked on Kindle and this author's work! I can't wait to read more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Writing and story good: editing needs work May 6, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I downloaded the Kindle edition of this book when it was offered for free. I would like to read sequels...but they do not appear to exist in print! This novel was written in what I would call "young adult" style in a science fiction format. I can see labeling it "thriller" or "horror" or even "paranormal", but I'd still say sci-fi is where it best fits.

The storyline was intriguing. Fast-paced but not frantic. Some characters could stand better development; but by the end of the book, I realize why they were merely rough sketches. I grew to love Faith, rooting for her as she attempted to untangle the web of lies and deceit that clutters her past, present, and hopefully not her future. I want to know how she fares on her journey in the world.

The Kindle edition I downloaded needs some major copy editing work. Every other use of the word "from" was typed "form." A couple jumbled sentences here and there. Not anything more than the poor editing job done on 75% of the books I've read from the past 15-20 years of publishing. The advent and subsequent meteoric rise of e-books seems to be in direct correlation to the downfall of decent copy editors.

In short, if you love "this could really happen but the scientists wouldn't dare, would they?" science fiction...you will like this book.
