Editorial Reviews



"Poignant...[Shelby's] snarky charm and well hidden kindness draw you in....A deep truth this story reveals is that finding closure after great loss is not a one time deal; life grows around such wounds in small increments over time."
USA Today

“An emotionally resonant portrait of loss and rebirth.”
People (Book of the Week select)

“Engaging and vivid...a satisfying, well earned close.”
The Boston Globe

"This is a luminous book that sucks you in...Allow plenty of time if you pick up Hoffman’s latest; you might not be able to put it back down."
Seattle Times

"Deeply moving...[Hoffman] takes us deep into the human heart, and in a relatable story, deftly examines the healing process."
Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Emotionally rewarding."
Houston Chronicle

"Bestselling author Alice Hoffman has done it again with her new novel, Faithful. Hoffman is an amazing storyteller who weaves us into the life of Shelby Richmond, an ordinary girl who becomes a remarkable young woman...There is that unique magic that Hoffman casts in all of her novels...Seriously, this is a novel for anyone who has faith."
Fort Worth Star Telegram

"This is a beautiful novel of a young woman finding her way after tragedy and keeping it real for the duration."
St. Louis Post Dispatch

"Faithful is a beautiful novel about surviving and how we can forgive ourselves after the most difficult tragedies."

“Popular and prolific Hoffman brings her lavish inventiveness and deep empathy to the story of a young woman afflicted with survivor’s guilt who finds kindred spirits in New York City, along with a watchful angel.”

"Faithful will take you on an emotional ride."

“Hoffman being heartbreaking and magical.”
Library Journal

“Bittersweet and luminous, Hoffman's novel is a testament to the quiet power of small gestures and gradual redemption.”
Shelf Awareness

“A novel full of people—flawed, scarred, scared—discovering how to punish themselves less and connect with others more.”
Kirkus Reviews

Faithful is a poignant novel about grief, guilt, and recovery. Alice Hoffman is a wonderful storyteller.”
—Tom Perrotta, New York Times bestselling author of Election, Little Children, and The Leftovers 

Alice Hoffman is a spectacular writer—generous and compassionate, elegant and fierce—and FAITHFUL is both a sweeping page turner and a gorgeous, heartbreaking exploration of family, faith, and love. This novel is as captivating as it is impossible to put down. I loved it."
—Molly Antopol, critically acclaimed author of The UnAmericans
