    DescriptionWhen sweet, healthy hearty Holly Fox dies suddenly in childbirth, the Surrey village whose pearl she was reverberates with shock. She leaves behind her a helpless, silent husband, and a tiny daughter, Faith. Everyone assumes Holly's loving and capable mother Thomasina will look after Faith, but when she unaccountably deserts her newborn grandchild, the baby must be packed off to her father's peculiar family in the North - 'the very strangest people you ever saw my dear'. With wisdom, generosity, and understanding, Jane Gardam takes as her subject the English heart in all its eccentric variety. FAITH FOX sheds a clear, true light on the pain of bereavement whilst always offering the joyous possibility of a new beginning.

    Review quote
    FAITH FOX has quite as sharp a take on modern times as Trainspotting ... if you're too hip for Jane Gardam, then you're too hip NEW STATESMAN Funny & admirable ... she writes with a dark & buoyant energy which continually challenges & provokes THE TIMES Dazzling ... Funny, bleak & full of wisdom, it's a complete delight MARIE CLAIRE Terribly funny & clever ... the best thing she's done Victoria Wood
