Summary
Barnaby Gaitlin, a thirty-year-old who was frequently in trouble as a youth, has been working steadily for eleven years for Rent-a-Back, Inc., but it seems as though his family, his ex-wife, and even the woman who seems to be interested in him, just cannot get over his past reputation
Summary
A troubled boy with a compulsion to break into other people's houses to read their mail is not able to break free of it until he is almost thirty, when he meets Sophia, a woman of unshakeable goodness who little by little transforms him into the good man he wants to be.
