Christine Pountney's "Sweet Jesus"

Sweet Jesus.jpgIt'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.
