Christine Pountney's "Sweet Jesus"
It's a week before the American election in a new novel by Christine Pountney. A strange coincidence!
In the book, three siblings, facing big changes in their lives, go on a road trip in that pre-election period, from Toronto to Witchita, Kansas, and they're headed for the Kingdom of Salvation Prophetic Ministry.
Along the way, the novel Sweet Jesus explores some very current themes: the definitions of family, religion and faith.
Christine Pountney grew up in Montreal and Vancouver. She spoke with Sonali Karnick about the new novel and the timing of its release.
