From the back cover: "His home is a hovel, aged but clean. His clothes are unfashionable and patched. He is selfless, compassionate, intelligent, and utterly unique. And although his peaceful nature would put anyone at ease, few in the idyllic oceanside community of Sea Norton, England, have taken the time to get to know Jake. In fact, most have shunned him, thinking him hopelessly eccentric.
Yet when the town is divided by fear and prejudice, it seems that only Jake is capable of interceding with a divine message of love and understanding. Will the town heed his call before it's too late?
This engaging allegory is a splendid reminder of the power of individual conviction."
186 pages, 22 chapters. Excerpt: "'There's only one snag,' Angharad's soft Welsh voice quivered with amusement. 'He built it all so well that now the old bus is rotting away around them. We'll soon have our wonder-home with nothing to keep out the wet.'" (pg. 43)
