A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Tom Lowe designed and built his family's dream home, working extra hours to pay off the mortgage he took on the property. Until, in a moment of fatigued inattention, he falls. In constant pain, addicted to painkillers, Tom comes to realize that he can never work again. If he is not a working man, who is he? He is not, he believes, the kind of person who lives in subsidized housing, though that is where he has ended up. He is not the kind of person who hatches a scheme to commit convenience-check fraud, until he finds himself stealing his banker's trash. Can he find a way to be once again a giver and not just a taker, to forge a self-acceptance deeper than pride?
