Holy Ghost Road (Paperback)

Holy Ghost Road By John Mantooth Cover Image
Not On Our Shelves - Available to Order


Some roads are haunted by the past. Some by ghosts. Some are even haunted by demons. The one Forest must travel is haunted by all three.

When she discovers Pastor Nesmith praying to a demonic entity in her family's barn, Forest knows she must run. Enraged at the possibility of having his true allegiance exposed, Nesmith pursues Forest as she flees on foot, hoping to reach the one person who will believe her-her grandmother. Unfortunately, Granny is forty miles away, and Forest has no car, no phone, and no friends. To reach her, Forest will have to learn to see the world true, even as the demonic and the sacred wage war for her soul.

"HOLY GHOST ROAD is a southern fried coming-of-age road novel mashed with an epic good vs. evil yarn. Thrilling from page one, as well as inventive and compassionate, the book made me want to go climb the nearest tree and sit in the branches with Forest."--Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Pallbearers Club.
