Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom

Mitch Albom's most recent novel, Have a Little Faith, was released in September 2009. Have a Little Faith is Albom's second non-fiction novel.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is searching for a good read. Have a Little Faith is touching, powerful, as well as upsetting.

While reading Have a Little Faith you will find the novel difficult to put down as you get lost in the life of Albom, Covington, and the rabbi.
