Description: "On her honeymoon trip, Emily Stanton-young, beautiful, woefully unsatisfied-lies awake long after her adoring husband has fallen asleep. Studying his face she puzzles over this new intimacy she's entered into, 'a bond almost of strangers who find themselves the victims of a common disaster...'absorbing...exquisitely sensual scenes." (The Cleveland Plain Dealer)

Set in the 1920s and journeying through Australia, Tunisia, and France, Conditions of Faith is a novel of one woman's life and the events that define it: a hasty wedding to an older man; an act of adultery; an unplanned pregnancy-and the insistent, gnawing hunger for a purpose in life beyond marriage and motherhood.

"Ambitious and convincing...highly explores the psyche of a woman torn between family and career with subtlety and grace." (The New York Times Book Review)

"It lingers in my mind...I am still thinking about Emily."(Colleen McCullough)
