Faithful
by Alice Hoffman

PBR Review We all know life can change in a split second and alter the trajectory of our lives. In the book Faithfull, Alice Hoffman tells the gut wrenching story of Shelby Richmond. She is the driver of the car involved in a terrible accident. Her best friend is the passenger and is critically injured. Shelby is physically ok but emotionally broken. Guilt ridden, she withdrawals, and the story unfolds. Alice Hoffman is such an excellent storyteller. I immediately became invested in Shelbys well being and recovery. She reminded me of Lisbeth Salander from the book The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. You cant help falling in love with this flawed character searching for redemption. Its a great story but does lag a bit in the middle. Stay with because it picks up again with a good ending. It would make a fantastic Book Club choice.Back.
Talking Points: This book is an emotional story and would spur a lively discussion with your book group. It shows the power of guilt and how that can lead to self punishment. The journey back is a very hard road and involves the love of many people.
