Well, I don't know. I thought that the first part of Chapter 16 was rather beautifully written (before it got all sentimental with all those good-byes and Jesus shining bright.) Hang in there. In my opinion, the story flounders a bit until Chapter 21, "New Faces." Then my interest picked up again. BTW, you've almost caught up to me. I haven't had much time to read lately.
