Parable of the Sower - Octavia E. Butler

sigh. I love it--but it's a book that often makes me very sad, usually after a shock. I've gotten used to the fact that any character could be gone at any time, but Lauren's dream keeps me hopeful for some kind of optimistic ending...though there will be no paradise for these wandering souls. problem is: will I have to see Lauren fail? a great book, but tragic, at times.
