Once his friend Jeremy is free from prison it seems as if all Benny's troubles are over. It can't be that hard to get his mother married and get a new home for them both. Benny wonders if God can really make all things new -- Jeremy's scarred face, Uncle Tom's hard heart, and delay after delay of plans for a new future doctoring and spreading the Word out West.
