Chapter 75 Summary: “Clark Kent”

Chapter 76 Summary: “Checks”

Millie and Grace are out shopping, and Millie is running out of patterned clothing. Ultimately, she finds a shirt she feels matches her whirling mind.

Chapter 77 Summary: “The Lamanites”

Thomas reads the Book of Mormon before going back to study the bill. Watkins is constantly on his mind; he recently refused funding for the Navajo.

Ultimately, Thomas thinks about how crazy the book is, comparing it to others he was familiar with such as the Sky Woman and the Nanabozho stories.
