Lavender Blue

As I was reading Lavender Blue, I couldn't help thinking that a good novel was like a puppet show, with the author expertly maneuvering the strings behind the scenes.

The Haunting of Henrietta

Let's say for a moment that St. Peter actually has the time to worry about each and every one of us when we arrive at the Pearly Gates (the waiting lines would be horrific). Through some sort of a mix up, could he actually condemn a few people to walk the Earth until they can get the brownie points ...
