The quest ends at the front door of a beautiful but decaying Gilded Age mansion, the once-grand former residence of a rubber-industry executive. It lacks functional plumbing and electricity, leaks rain like a cartoon shack, and is infested with all manner of wildlife. But for a young father at a coming-of-age crossroads, the challenge is precisely the allure.All the Way Home is Giffelss funny, poignant, and confounding journey through the great adventure of restoring a crumbling house on the way to discovering what the words grown up and home really mean.
