An old house, a new lover, a fresh life for Dominick or will the faith-driven doom it all?

The past just won't go away. Dominick likes to idle there in history's comfortable remove, but when his mother dies and he meets the half sister he never knew he had, the past becomes more personal and the present more dangerous.

In this sequel to New Jerusalem News, Dominick's perpetual peregrinations are interrupted by a visit to his newfound sibling's historic Hudson Valley estate, which is also home to a Wiccan coven. In one way or another his departure is continually delayed by circumstance, brushes with the local sheriff, and the history of the place itself a stop on the Underground Railroad.

Once again, Dominick's quest for noninvolvement and a purely "observer's" status is thwarted by reality. In Some People Talk With God, follow the new misadventures of this charming wanderer as he encounters an ineffable world of lovers, schemers, and fanatics.

MEDIA 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
