About the book:

Lyle and Peg Hovde, now in their golden years, live a quiet and contented life in rural Wisconsin.  After a troubled adolescence and a period of estrangement, their daughter, Shiloh, has returned home, bringing her five-year-old son, Isaac, with her.  Shiloh has changed in her time away from home, however.  Now, she’s a feverishly involved member of an extremist church – and the pastor believes that Isaac has the God-given ability to heal the sick.

Lyle, whose own faith was severely shaken after a tragedy years ago, finds himself torn.  The practices of the church make him increasingly uneasy – but if he rebuffs Shiloh’s newfound community, his daughter and grandson may disappear from his life for good.  And when Isaac’s safety is threatened, Lyle is forced to make a decision that my fracture the family beyond repair.

Set over the course of one year and beautifully evoking the change of seasons, “Little Faith” is a stunning and profoundly moving novel about friendship and community, the ways in which belief is both forged and dismantled, and the lengths we go to protect our own.
