Really good book. Jordan started out with one plan - sell the house and use the money to build his own business. But as soon as he met Nell and the rest of the residents of the house, his plans started to change. The drive to make money began to become a need to belong. Nell was used to caring for everyone, and wasn't quite sure how to let someone else help take care of her. I loved the way that Jordan became part of the family, and learned to allow himself to feel.
