Three People, by Pansy (1841 - 1930)
Three boys in very different home environments start life on the same day: the pampered Pliny Hastings, the solidly brought-up Benny Phillips, and the uneducated street scamp Theodore “Tode” Mall. Their lives intertwine around the issue of "rum" and a dying mother's prayer for her little boy. A classic Pansy book with a strong temperance message. (Summary by TriciaG)

If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project.

question about Chapter 4 file.

Every time I try to download it the file name shows as chapter 3. I've rechecked ch 3 and ch 2 and they show alright. Perhaps there is an oops???

Yes, it was. :roll: I copy/paste the link from the previous one when a chapter is uploading. I forgot to change the chapter number.
