9781940192260: The River Caught Sunlight

Sometimes a person has to leave home, even if that home is the most marvelous place she's ever lived, even if her mother will be diagnosed with terminal cancer, and her beloved farmer, a man she's loved for years asks her to marry him. Janice Westfahl feels called to publicize Godspeed Books, a small evangelical publisher outside Chicago, a good thousand miles away from upstate New York. The job fits her, a woman who loves God and books.
 
But Janice finds herself working with Jeremiah Sackfield, a radical rightwing activist, who toys with revolution. Even though she is a brilliant publicist, Janice feels like she is betraying herself by promoting a cause she doesn't believe in. Like the elder brother in the Prodigal Son story, her brother has stayed home, furious his sister has dodged the painful months of his mother's dying, while earning their father's favor. When her father dies, they must settle the estate with this jealousy flickering between them.

Book Description:

Janice Westfahl’s career is on fire, and she is compelled to leave her home in upstate New York, the most marvelous place she’s ever lived. But her mother is diagnosed with terminal cancer, and her beloved farmer, the love of her life, asks her to marry him.  Yet she leaves because she feels called to publicize Godspeed Books, a small evangelical publisher outside of Chicago. The job fits her, a woman who loves God and books, so she move to her new life with eyes wide open and the highest of hopes.

But all is not as she expected, and eventually Janice questions her work with Jeremiah Sackfield, a radical right wing activist who toys with revolution. Even though she is a brilliant professional publicist, Janice begins to feel like a whore promoting a cause she doesn’t believe in. Meanwhile her brother has stayed home with their dying mother, and is furious with Janice and jealous of what he sees as her freedom. When their father dies, they must settle the estate amidst the fireworks of their jealousy.

The River Caught Sunlight is about radical people who love their country so fiercely they will do anything to hold onto it. The Sackfields espouse Biblical bigotry and pretend to be patriots who openly revolt in favor of what they see is God’s way. Janice eventually discovers that when you bed down a god, the barns burn. The only question was would she burn as well.

From the Back Cover:

"Katie Andraski is a brave writer and The River Caught Sunlight is an ambitious and intelligent novel. The real story is the one below the surface where nothing is as it seems." 
--John Dufresne, author of No Regrets Coyote

"It's the lyric impulse that gives the novel its substance, but it's packed also with new and startling maneuvers of human beings--no, family--against one another. A true new voice."--Larry Woiwode, author of A Step from Death"This is a warm and powerful story of the children of baby boomers trying to cope with death, inheritance, human fallibility and love."--Jack Butler, author of Practicing Zen Without a License
