Author: Amy Stolls
Main Themes:Excerpt: The cathedral is lit up gloriously against a black sky. It's a commanding structure of limestone blocks and spires; the center tower rises thirty stories high, one of the tallest points in the city.

Couples ignore the "Closed After Dark" sign and slip through the arched wooden doorway.
