In All Good Faith: A Novel
To say the Great Depression was a trying time for the nation would be an understatement. Millions were unemployed, and many more faced difficult circumstances due to drought and bank failures. While it was not the darkest chapter in our nation’s history, it was a long, bleak stretch, with seemingly no end in sight.
All the same, some people were able to survive, and even to thrive in a sense, remaking themselves to fit the difficult times. In All Good Faith tells the story of two women who do just that: May Craig and Dorrit Sykes. May works in the family store even though her husband feels her place is at home with their children; Dorrit follows her father to Washington, D.C. in an ill-fated march as veterans demand the money the government promised them but never delivered. The two stories weave together and intersect in surprising ways, finally coming together in a touching tale of resilience and solidarity.
Note: May Craig formerly appeared in another of Taylor’s books, Etiquette for Runaways, although In All Good Faith can be read as a standalone novel.
