    Hi there! I had a question about this chapter. Do you think that after the exorcism is complete, a spontaneous soul retrieval happens for Jamie, bringing back a soul piece that had left his body as a boy? This would explain the high-pitched voice Claire hears right before she holds him and he sobs at the end of the chapter. If a soul retrieval has occurred, what age do you think the soul part was? Eight year-old Jamie (the age when he lost his mother)? Thanks for the read alongs!

      Thia, thank you for listening! That’s an interesting question, I have heard of the term “soul retrieval” but do not know much about it. It is a fascinating thought. The eight-year-old voice does make food for thought, no?

Let us know what you think! :)
