    Nick sends Gatsby back in to Daisy, while he himself sneaks out the back and wanders around the house for half an hour. Like Claudia, Kathy Fish looks intently at childhood. The next day, Nick phones Daisy and extends his invitation with the stipulation "Don't bring Tom. This, in fact, is the story of Augustine's conversion: He was blind to God's truth, but God patiently drew him back toward that truth. Although he is inclined to reserve judgment, he is not entirely forgiving. The Lost Generation more specifically was a group of writers and artists who lived and worked in Paris or in other parts of Europe during World War I and the Depression.

    Arriving an hour before Daisy, Gatsby is nervous and, for the first time in the novel, a little unsure of himself. The shirts keep coming, and Gatsby keeps throwing them. Brother or sister will enjoy reading this book aloud, with words that rhyme after each line. Toddlers will thrill in the happy, colorful illustrations and listening to this story based on true life events.

    By expressing his faith through the vehicle of his life story, Augustine hopes to bring his readers to a better understanding of God's grace. One night, he attends a dinner party in East Egg; the party is given by Tom Buchanan and his wife, Daisy. Along the way they meet Klipspringer, "the boarder," who was busy doing exercises as if he hadn't a care in the world. When she joined the CCF in the s, her political activism added interest to her life and provided her escape when she was elected to the House of Commons in as a United Progressive MP. Nick fought in World War I; after the war, he went through a period of restlessness. But because they are weak and sinful, humans can never hope to do this without God's assistance.
