About the Author

John Enright was born in Buffalo, New York, in 1945. He holds a bachelor's degree in literature from the City College of New York and a master's degree in folklore from the University of California, Berkeley. After serving stints in semi-professional baseball, the Lackawanna steel mills, and the publishing industry in New York, San Francisco, and Hong Kong, he left the United States to teach at the American Samoa Community College and spent the next twenty-six years living on the islands of the South Pacific. Over the past four decades, his essays, articles, short stories, and poems have appeared in more than seventy books, anthologies, journals, periodicals, and online magazines. His most recent works include the Jungle Beat Mystery series and New Jerusalem News. Today, he and his wife, ceramicist Connie Payne, live in Jamestown, Rhode Island.

Reviews

"Delightfully casual . . . deliciously charming." --Sam Coale, Providence Journal

"In this sequel to New Jerusalem News, Enright's hero Dominick returns to meet Amanda, a half-sister he only learned about when their mother died and left them her estate. The two warily get to know one another, and they're strangely similar in their sangfroid. Dominick has no discernible occupation, a fondness for history, and enough friends to be an ever-traveling professional house guest. Amanda lives in New York's Hudson Valley with her lawyer girlfriend, Morgan, who is more business partner than romantic connection; the renters of their run-down historic home are a coven of witches. Amanda and Morgan have designs on Dominick's share of inheritance. When Dominick arrives to visit Amanda, the plot thickens. . . . Colorful minor characters provide easy-reading pleasure. Dominick's interrogation of history's puzzles and threads holds the (mostly) low-key plot together. This good vacation diversion has little to do with faith, title notwithstanding." --Publishers Weekly
