Sorry about the posting error. It was a late night. But this new link for Chapter 17 should work.
Also I thought I should clear out the non-functioning post, with apologies for any confusion I caused.
The link above is the right link to Chapter 17 and also here is an updated Table of Contents.
We're still at the birthday party but from Lorna's perspective. She learns important things about Eli. The chapter is also a little longer this week, because I won't be able to post for a few weeks due to work, and I wanted to be sure we got to this point in the story. My apologies for the hiatus. But I will be back--promise.
