When Bernard Dayman falls asleep, the nurse thinks he has died. Bernard thinks so too, until he opens his eyes and finds himself waiting for a bus on a street he had never traveled before.

After learning about the homes in New Town, Bernard becomes determined to get there . . . and along the way discovers a thing or two about the Christian walk.
