Faithful, by Kim Cash Tate

This book allows the reader to meander through the lives of a handful of women–sisters and friends, some single, others married–and observe how real life and real problems can unravel faith.

Set in modern day Western culture, teeming with responsibilities to family and opportunities to be discreet, the parallel lives of these women illustrate the role of fidelity in marriage and chasitity in singlehood. Cyd is the central character who holds the plot and the all the stories together with her unwavering connection to God. At every crisis or confusion, you find her in prayer.

The story is about each person’s faithfulness to the other and faith in God. Faithfulness is a story about the test of Christianity in today’s world.

I loved that the themes were relevant. I loved that the author had the guts to examine sensitive issues. I loved that Christianity wasn’t just sprinkled here and there to make the book “Christian.” Loved all that; but as a piece of fiction, aside from the content, it was just okay for you.
