The Vietnam War is on the nightly news and women are burning bras in the
fast-changing world of the 1960s, but thirty-year old Laura wonders why her
choice as a feminist couldn't be to have a baby without marriage. Laura not
only has to justify her desire to her forward-thinking friends, but to her
fundamentally religious siblings, as well. Yet, her most important mission is
to find a man who will agree to impregnate her and then get out of the picture
once the act is accomplished.

Four narrators push along this charming tale set in 1960s Seabrook, Long
Island, as three adult siblings converge in their recently deceased father's home.
Laura is a 30-year-old newspaper columnist from New York. Her brother, Eric, is
a compassionate minister trying to find his faith, and sister Beth is an angry and
disapproving fundamentalist who is determined to hinder her siblings' desires in the name of her religion. They share the narration with Eric's wife, Jenny.

Tragic secrets are revealed without resorting to high drama in this portrayal of two separate halves of counterculture and suburban banality. Readers will find Of Little Faith to be uplifting and heartfelt in the most surprising of ways.
