Overview

What Happened to Sophie Wilder by Christopher Beha

A heartfelt exploration of faith and love and friendship, What Happened To Sophie Wilder is a beautiful, absorbing work about the redemptive power of storytelling: a literary love story.
Charlie Blakeman has just published his first novel, to almost no acclaim. He's living on New York's Washington Square, struggling with his follow-up, and floundering within his pseudointellectual coterie when his college love, Sophie Wilder, returns to his life. Sophie is also struggling, though Charlie isn't sure why, since they've barely spoke, after falling out a decade before. Now Sophie begins to tell Charlie the story of her life since then, particularly the story of the days she spent taking care of a dying man with his own terrible past and of the difficult decision he forced her to make. When she disappears once again, Charlie sets out to discover what happened to Sophie Wilder. Christopher Beha's debut novel explores faith, love, friendship, and, ultimately, the redemptive power of storytelling.

Maybe it's me, but this book was ODD. There were times that ir flowed and was interesting, but mostly just ran on and on erratically. I would not recommend it.

This beautifully written first novel has main characters you really care about and a compelling story that also raises important questions of faith, morality and religion. After reading this novel, I will go back and read this author's memoir. We read this in our bookgroup and the discussion was terrific.
