Listening Point: A Novel is on schedule and ready for pre-orders. You can earn a 10-percent discount by pre-ordering direct from Riverfeet Press. The book will be published in June 2023.
I first posted about the book in February, and you can find good background information there, but here again is the plot in a nutshell:
As the climate crisis fuels mass migration and social unrest in the 2060s, Andrew Hochevar, a young priest in northern Minnesota, has a mysterious, powerful encounter one hot August day at Sigurd Olson’s Listening Point. The experience upends his traditional understanding of God, the Church, and his own calling. It also propels him along a spiritual journey that brings healing to the sick, puts him at odds with his bishop, and threatens a growing movement of white nationalists.
It’s a fast-paced story about the importance of “listening with inward ears,” as Sigurd Olson put it. And now that Riverfeet Press has set up a page for the book, it is starting to seem real. I’m excited to see it go through the editorial process and final cover design process and get it into people’s hands!
