Alice Hoffman Remains Faithful With New Book

faithful_aFaithful is a great soul-searching story, especially for Long Island readers. Long Island native and the New York Times bestselling author, Alice Hoffman unfolds a story of a young woman, Shelby, affected by a tragedy that changes her life completely.

You know the setting, like really know the setting; you’ve been here, physically been here. It’s Your Town U.S.A., the setting of your real life every day and that’s what makes it a story you can personally get inside. Having said that, it’s an easy place for any reader to invest in…suburban girl next door with real, modern problems.

You know this character. She’s your friend, your sister, your cousin. She is broken, lonely, lost and unreachable, all in real ways.

Shelby struggles now to redefine herself after being guilt-filled and defeated. The story is believable and captivating; you’ll cheer for love and family and the emotional journey from seemingly normal to a painfully dark place and back again.

How do you help someone find their way back from a very unreachable place? Is there hope?

Hoffman is a skilled storyteller and this book will not disappoint both fans of the author and newcomers to her fiction.
