Looking at it again will be a distraction, the Reverend Mr. Keach tells World War I veteran Tom Birken, who will spend a month in the country restoring the mural. Another veteran, James Moon, is looking for the grave of an ancestor of the patroness of the church who fought in the Crusades.

Will she open the book in which he has pressed the yellow rose she gave him earlier? Written by Dale O'Connor See less
