    A master craftsman, Don Lark could fix everything except what mattered, his own soul. After tragedy claimed the one thing he loved, he began looking for dilapidated houses to buy, renovate, and resell at a profit, giving these empty shells the second chance at life he denied himself.

    Overall

    I've read and enjoyed several books by Card, and liked the sound of this one. I took it even though the reviews were somewhat underwhelming. I'm glad I did. The characters were great and the story held my interest right up to the end. I have three main observations about this book: 1) contrary to some other reviewers, I actually liked how he developed the characters and played them off against each other - thought that was ther best part of this book, 2) the change in romantic interest from the real estate agent to the homeless girl didn't work for me - he should have stayed with the agent ... she was hot, and 3) the ending was just a bit much - felt too much like a second rate Hollywood horror film, with gratuitous destruction. Yet, I've listened to much worse on here and this was a nice way to pass the time.
