The Walking Tanteek
Jane Woods

I’d like to offer a warm welcome to everyone visiting this site. I’m so pleased to be able to share the publication of my first novel, The Walking Tanteek, with you. Here’s a brief description of what it’s all about:

Does faith insist upon the spotless soul? Is forgiveness possible this side of the River Styx? In this whip-smart debut novel, due out April 1, 2014 on Goose Lane Editions, Maggie Prentice is resolved to find out, even if it costs her everything.
Her twin-brother Gerard, a born-again, hardline priest, runs a ragtag cult of drug addicts and street people. Maggie attaches herself to the cult, but chafes under her brother’s harsh tutelage. Ensnared in a familial death-grip, haunted by the dogmatic us-versus-them mindset, and rejecting her own disconnectedness, Maggie sets out on her own quest for the missing link in a world both fierce and curiously familiar.
