Faith is dead.
The glamorous, enigmatic, bewitching character who was at the heart of so many people’s lives, who defined so many allegiances and loves, has gone.
At her funeral, those who knew her and loved her contemplate the past and the future, and the mystery of her death.
Mike, the zealous revolutionary turned property developer. His wife Nicole, whose faith has been tested in other ways closer to home. Luke, whose devotion to God has been sorely tested in the high-rises and leafy lanes of 1990s England.
And the other – the one who tells the story. The one who loved and lost her, and who may ultimately discover the truth from an unexpected source.
A chronicle of love and hate, of idealism and disillusionment from Thatcher’s Eighties through to Blair’s Nineties, Losing Faith is the story of lives inextricably bound up in one other, and of a final, startling revelation.
A truth which will change all their lives for ever.
