Oops, I haven't fixed 15, but chapter 16 is ready! :D

April,
Looks like I'll be cataloging this soon. Don't forget the book summary/description. Thanks.

Aww :9:

PL notes for chapter 16:
2:14 repeat - Then because he saw his answer in her eyes, he came near and took her reverently in his arms, laid his lips upon hers, and thus they stood for a moment together, knowing that after all the sorrow, the longing, the separation, each had come into his own.

17:13 missing text - People said he was like his dead mother. Perhaps the grand man of the desert could help her brother to better things. Perhaps he would come out here to visit them and catch a vision of another kind of life and take a longing for it as she had done.

I'm trying to re-write the summary, but it keeps ending up pretty much just like what I started with. :roll: Guess I've read it too many times... Writer's Block!

:hmm:

Linny, maybe, without looking back you would be able to come up with something since you've heard it now too...

Er... what percentage of words must be changed before it's considered original? LOL

I am terrible with summaries. Take any or none, absolutely no offense taken.

This is a Christian love story. She was raised in luxury, he was raised to serve G_d. An untimely adventure unites the two but can they ever truly be a match? They part knowing very little about the other except for the love they feel. Follow the journey of coming closer to the Lord and finding true love in the least likely place.

Thanks. I did use some of it. So, the summary is now finished in the first post.

Also, ready for spot PL on 15 & 16.

Stay tuned for the "happily ever after"...

Oh, I like the summary. Nicely done!

I’ll spot check tomorrow. I’m in for a 24 hr test but I should be home before noon.

15 and 16 are both spot check PL OK. :D

Test is over. Nothing to worry about. It's a standard every couple of years type thing. I think it's all a ploy to make sure I pay my deductible in full. :roll:
