Caroline Studeman is a bright young physician with everything to live for: a new marriage, a baby on the way and deep relationships with youngsters who need her healing touch. But her path to adulthood was marked by secrets and grief even her husband knows nothing about. When a terrible accident leaves her comatose, the walls she built to protect her past begin to crumble. As her family and friends reconstruct the shocking truths of her childhood and her tumultuous years at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, old hurts and grievances emerge. Caroline's family finally learns the depths of her love--and they learn what they must do to bring healing into their own lives. A Matter of Faith is a finely crafted portrait of love, forgiveness and redemption. Brian Morin's first novel will touch your heart and your soul.

Several months ago, we decided to publish A Matter of Faith, market it primarily to students, parents, alumni and friends of the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, and donate the proceeds to the School. I talked with several friends from my graduating class, ’85, and our juniors, ’86, and sent them copies. When Gina Norman ’86 said, "Brian, it’s really good. No, I’m not just saying it—it is good. I would tell you it is anyway, but at least now I don’t have to lie," the project was born.
We are printing 2000 copies at a cost of under $5000, and selling them for $15 each. All of the proceeds will be donated to the School as an unrestricted donation. We’ll be visiting the School on Alumni Day to sell signed copies (and sign copies bought elsewhere).With luck, a few local bookstores will carry the book, as well as the student store at the School.
You can contact me at brian@Morin.ws. I’m happy to hear your thoughts—the good, the bad, and the ugly.From the Author:
Whether or not you purchase this book, I want to thank you for making it this far. This book is a work for charity. Almost 80% of the proceeds will go straight to the North Carolina School of Science and Math as an unrestricted donation. The rest will pay for printing and what minor marketing we do. My hope is that the money will help the School to inspire the young students in the same way it did me. My time there remains one of my fondest memories, and most meaningful periods in my life. I will close with a quote from the end of Chapter 6, which captures my feelings as accurately as my craft will allow.
After nearly five hundred telescoping days of intense study and intense friendship, seniors at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics are ready to graduate. We approach graduation the way a sailor, long at sea, approaches the shore. As it grows closer, we stand on the rails, longing for the new life it offers. We leap off early and sprint through the shallow waters of the days just before, and then dive into it and kiss the first land we touch.
