This will be short, as I am not in NOVA but rather in Southern Michigan. I dislike composing on my laptop (keyboard thing) so as I say, this will be brief.
Just one thought, from my current read that I only read moments ago.
...Man was lost and saved in a garden ~ originally by Pascal, quoted by Father Latour in Death Comes for the Archbishop I'd never thought of that before.
I'll finish this novel today. I like it. It's very sweet, but I'm not sure yet what will be the point.
Happy Birthday America!
