Description: 

The New Hope Church, located "three miles away" from the Bundrens' farm, is where the family usually buries its dead (15). Probably it is the church where Cash fell earlier and broke his leg the first time (15). In this novel the Bundrens never get closer to "New Hope" than three miles, though their journey twice takes them past the sign on the road that points there.
