Description: 

Less than "three miles away" from the Bundrens' house is the New Hope Church where the family usually buries its dead (28-29). In this novel, however, the Bundrens never get closer to "New Hope" than three miles, though their journey twice takes them past the "white signboard with faded lettering" that points there (108). Probably this is also the church that Cash fell off of and broke his leg the first time (15).
