A Lesson Before Dying Chapter 13
Advertisement - Guide continues below
- On Sunday Grant hears Miss Eloise Bouie calling to his aunt from the road so they can walk to church together.
- Grant refuses to go to church, so he spends Sunday morning trying to ignore the singing coming from all the devoted people around him.
- He remembers the Friday before, when he had gotten back to the plantation late after seeing Jefferson and then Vivian.
- His aunt is furious with him, and she's waiting with Miss Emma and the preacher, Reverend Ambrose.
- She makes Grant sit down with them and explain how the visit with Jefferson went. He tries to tell them that Jefferson was fine, even though it's a lie.
- The Reverend is concerned about whether or not Grant and Jefferson talked about God, which no, they didn't.
- Suddenly, in the middle of the church music, Grant hears a car door and Vivian appears at his front door.
