The story of a motherless girl named Faith and her family and close friends, all of whom are determined to see her live a happy life.

Faith's mother died in childbirth; her overworked father cannot raise his child alone; and her unconventional grandmother refuses to acknowledge the child whose birth took away the daughter she loved. And so a motley crew of family and friends converges to see that Faith is brought up correctly. The concerned parties include Faith's uncle, who runs a commune in northern England; the Tibetan refugees who have moved in with him; and the splendidly bickering paternal grandparents. What ensues is a brilliant comedy of manners set equally amidst high society and low.

Faith Fox is a story that explores the wonder of the human heart in all its thunderous eccentricity. Gardam has mastered the essence of age and youth and above all noncomformity. Her memorable characters are sure to delight.

When Holly Fox dies in childbirth many lives are changed in unexpected ways. Her child, Faith, lives to provide the rebirth for her family with all its eccentricities and differences. Gardam, a two time Whitbread Award winner, has an acute eye for the absurd as well as deep compassion for her characters.
