Paula Landin-Cohen is keeping a terrible secret from her husband, and it’s tearing her marriage apart. In Finding Faith by Denise Hunter, Paula learns the importance of honesty, as well as the difficulty of possessing it. The hope of a promotion urges her to investigate the identity of a three-year-old girl called Faith, but the investigation stirs up memories that Paula has tried to bury.
The novel’s beginning was slow, but before long I couldn’t wait to see what would happen to the characters, and how all the bits of plot would fit together. Unfortunately, there are some pieces that don’t seem to fit anywhere. Paula’s marriage often seems trite and not much deeper than the fickle relationships teenagers find themselves in—fine one moment and barely intact the next.
For the most part, the characters are refreshingly imperfect. They make mistakes, suffer the consequences, and learn from the ordeals in a way that the reader can identify with. Paula is pleasant, and slightly flirtatious, but she is also a selfish woman. Her career comes first. Linn is a delightful young woman who has made some bad choices and is suffering the consequences. But though she is trying hard to get her life back on track, she finds herself falling into the same traps that led her here. David’s role as Paula’s husband is quite nondescript; he alternates between being a kind and loving mate who calls frequently and genuinely cares about Paula, to other times being a distant man who doesn’t talk to her unless he has to, depending on which would better add to the drama of the moment. And the parents of Faith are picturesque parents who truly care for their daughter, coping with her Cerebral Palsy, and who are the solid example of a good Christian couple in this story.
When Paula has a chance to leave home for awhile in hopes of a chance at her dream job, she leaves without hesitation. Not long after she moves to Chicago, she is approached by a family that is desperate to find out the real identity of their daughter, Faith. Paula agrees to help the small family, knowing that if she helps them it will nearly secure her the promotion. Yet, it is too close to her painful past for comfort. The disentanglement of events means the unraveling of everything she thought was constant in her own little world.
Finding Faith was a fun book to read. It has a good mix of serious moments and lighthearted ones. The story does mention—and features characters who participated in—abortion and adultery. Paula herself does not see anything wrong with abortion for most of the book. However neither action is portrayed in a positive light; the consequences are terrible.
Though it is book three in a series, the story stands very well on its own. It is a narrative of love and excitement, and filled with applicable truths. I would recommend this book to any woman who doesn’t mind a romance novel that delves a little deeper than most dare. – Sarah Haines, Christian Book Previews.com

    While Finding Faith is the second of a series, I had no trouble following the characters' lives or understanding their pasts, though I hadn't read the first book. A story of pain and sorrow, Hunter colors the pages with dark hues of sin's consequences. But it's also a story of love and the promise of a future, blended with brilliant jewel tones of redemption and restoration. Peopled with believable characters, Finding Faith is a haunting story. I was drawn into their lives and then, just when I thought I had things figured out, Hunter threw a curve ball I didn't see coming. A brilliant plot and well written, Finding Faith delivers more than I expected.

    I adore Denise Hunter's writing. She always has some amazing twist that makes me gasp and flip the pages even faster. Finding Faith is her best book yet. I was blown away when the secret was revealed. If you haven't discovered Hunter yet, you're in for a treat. She has a way of twisting your heart and you FEEL every moment with her characters.
