About Book

Joe Stratford makes an honest living helping nice people buy and sell nice houses. Now that his not-very-amicable divorce is over, he is ready for his life to begin again. It's 1982 and Marcus Burns, Joe's new friend from New York, says the old rules are ready to be broken. But are his ideas about how to get rich too big and risky for Joe? And is Felicity - winning, free-spirited (and already married) - really the one he's been waiting for?

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Thousand Acres, Good Faith is a masterly novel about some very American seductions: money, sex and real estate.
