    A wonderfully woven account of the author's childhood home being deconstructed by Habitat for Humanity and used to build other homes. Sherry Lincoln is a humorous and creative storyteller. Her story reaches far beyond the location of the story, Springfield, Missouri, and will touch the heart of anyone with fond memories of their childhood home.
