Not King's best work. It didn't have enough tension to really hold my interest and there wasn't the usual character development to make up for it.

“Spring gave way to summer, and summer faded into autumn. I mention this, dear reader, not in order to insult your intelligence by assuming you do not comprehend the sequence of the seasons, but merely as a convenient means of transition.”

booklady Have you ever heard the song with these words?

"Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours...
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now."

It's by John Michael Talbot and I've found where you can download it but I'm just too technologically ignorant to know how! The song, however, is beautiful!

God bless, booklady
