Janet E. Clark

Whenever Lucinda Walters experiences tragedy and loss, she knows there's one sure place where she can turn for solace and strength: her Church. She counts on her faith to carry her through when her daughter Rita dies, leaving behind two little boys and a devastated husband with a weakness for alcohol. Lucinda steps in to help her son-in-law Mike O'Donnell raise David and Jack, and as Mike's alcoholism progresses, so does her need for the comfort only her faith can provide. When Father Louis Delanoit offers to spend extra time with Jack, now twelve years old and just beginning altar boy training, Lucinda is honored to have her grandson receive special attention from the priest. But Jack's innocence is shattered when the priest's true intentions are revealed, trapping the boy in a web of silence and abuse, woven by Father Delanoit's manipulation and the blind faith of the community.

Midwest Book Review
An involving story about the blind faith of a community manipulated
By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)

Award-winning writer Janet Clark presents Blind Faith, a novel about the Roman Catholic clergy sexual abuse scandal as experienced through the eyes of young Jack O'Donnell and his family during the late 60s and early 70s. An involving story about the blind faith of a community manipulated, children betrayed, and the struggle to cope with hopelessly tangled emotions. Highly recommended.
