Christine Wright is having a bad day. She’s an ex-special forces soldier and a recovering alcoholic, and now her new career as a church minister has started off with the worst kind of bang. Could it be her reflexes are a little too twitchy for this job?
From the opening page, this fast-paced tale is all about a cover up: the burying of a body, while fending off an angry widow, and a very suspicious parishioner appalled by the loss of a precious church artifact. And then there’s the vengeful plot of a terminally ill military-cop-turned-stalker who plans to get Christine locked up if it’s the last thing he does.
Among the many revelations and surprises we experience is the fact that we’re instantly on the side of the unfailingly flawed and irreverent Christine—who cannot imitate a perfectly pious priest even though her life so clearly depends on it. Mystic Julian of Norwich, she of the famous “all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well,” is the patron saint of this wickedly funny novel.
All Is Well for Katherine Walker’s readers despite, or because of, Reverend Wright’s many wrongs.

About the Author

Katherine was born and raised in Calgary, located in the Treaty 7 region on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, and the Métis Nation (Region 3). She studied fine arts and design and after working as a graphic designer up north, Katherine joined the Royal Canadian Navy, which took her to the west and east coasts and out to sea. Her recent graduate studies in divinity, along with her artistic and military background, enhance her journey through life. You can talk with Katherine about divine guidance, dismantling underwater mines, or the connection between beauty and truth. Katherine is grateful for the tradition of story, the wilderness, and every breath in this amazing life. All Is Well is her first novel.

Reviews

“…There’s an engaging quality to the story that keeps the reader turning the page to follow this particular cast of characters, and a freshness to the way the story is told that is very satisfying…definitely a talent to watch.” – Heather Graham (The Ormsby Review)

“When an Anglican minister with an alcoholic past kills a parishioner in self-defence, she uses her military experience to cover it up. But what she ends up having to deal with is not only the people around her, but her past trauma. Katherine Walker turns a fantastical, almost ludicrous situation into a clever and believable story..” – Rebecca Eckler
