Walk Back the Cat: A Novel by Pamela Binnings Ewen
From AD 33, to the 1950s, to 2005, Walk Back the Cat tells the intricate, page-turning story of Wesley Bright. A corrupt, mediasavvy clergyman, he's out to destroy the Christian church of the God who was never there during his childhood.Like a cat retracing its steps to return home, the reader must go back to discover the root causes of Wesley's actions.Connecting the vast time shifts are mysterious characters and elements surrounding the Shroud of Turin, the burial cloth of Jesus. And although Wesley thrives on proving that truth is relative, what will soon transpire is brilliantly absolute.
