Review by: Paul Swearingen on Nov. 25, 2013 : star star star star star
In this memoir/philosophical work, Cottonwood shows that not only can he mend almost anything on, under, in, or around a house, he can also mend errant souls, or at least nudge them in the right direction. This is a fabulous read for anyone who has fancied him or herself a Mr./Ms. Fixit and found that sometimes the problem is not so much the physical dwelling - it's the people who live there.
