With a girl like Lucy Tanner on his arm, Mike Giannichi could show the world he was back. He could settle old scores and establish new ground. An uncontestable display of his prowess could be the sweetest revenge of all. While for Lucy Tanner, a would-be actress, the future could be assured with a guy like Mike Giannichi opening doors and calling the shots. With his connections, Lucy could finally claim the success she deserved. Her brother, Shay, could be cared for in the manner his increasingly fragile state of mind required. Shay, with his quest to unravel the empires of the rich and powerful, could acquire the access he coveted by surrendering his secrets to Mike Giannichi. Each had something to gain. All they had to do was take a leap of faith. Yet as the three lives merge, ambitions turn ugly and dreams change to nightmares. What begins as an alliance becomes a desperate dependence on circumstances no one can abandon, much less control.

“Shelter” speaks to the desire in all of us to find one safe haven amid the pain and confusion of an uncertain world.

Got this from the library a few years ago, and still feel inspired by it. Shelter takes one back to the feel of the early 70's, of the back-to-the-land movement of the time, that perhaps some of us missed, and some older hippies still carry on; when dome houses, yurts, dwellings of found materials, and more were confidently built by anyone with a dream to house people in various communal agreements, or solitary hermits. Many forms of indigenous housing from around the world are also profiled. Perusing the inspired projects of the time also brought me a sense of melancholy because the disparity between the wonderful creativity and idealism of the late 60's and early 70's and the dark forces of corporatization that have become an accepted part of existence today is here brought into stark relief. On the other hand, those of us who have grown up within the walls of dead, square, cookie cutter homes are awakened in these pages to a new world of possibility, a new sense of the fundamental importance of consciously choosing the form of one's dwelling. Anyone casually interested in astrology knows that 90 degree angles are not harmonious--and we are caged in them for most of our lives in our culture. There are so many other options! This book is such a beautiful homage to the human spirit.more
