A master craftsman, Don Lark could fix everything except what mattered, his own soul. After tragedy claimed the one thing he loved, he began looking for dilapidated houses to buy, renovate, and resell at a profit--giving these empty shells the second chance at life he denied himself.
Then in a quiet Southern town, Lark finds his biggest challenge: a squalid yet sturdy mansion that has suffered decades of abuse at the hands of greedy landlords and transient tenants. While two charming old neighbor ladies ply him with delicious cooking, they offer dire warnings about the house's evil past. But there is something about this building that pushes Lark on, even as its enchantments grow increasingly ominous. Will finishing the house offer Lark redemption, or unleash the darkest forces of damnation upon him?

Have you ever wondered why in places such as California, the RVs are moving slowly and hugging the right lane? It's not that they can't go any faster; it's because in many states and provinces the maximum speed for towing vehicles is substantially lower than the posted speed limit. In addition, there are many other differences in laws and regulations among North American jurisdictions that most travelers fail to realize. For example: did you know that in Alaska you can be fined up to $10,000 for texting while driving? Have you ever looked for a lottery ticket in Nevada and not found one? Did you know that Quebec is the only Canadian province that sells wine in the corner store? Did you know that you can face a hefty fine for bringing Washington cherries into California? This book provides state-by-state and province-by-province information on some important highway regulations, helmet laws, trailering guidelines, liquor and gambling laws, and more. It was specifically written with travelers in mind to provide convenient answers to common questions they may have when not in their home state or province. Additional information is included about the metric system, crossing international borders, and traveling with firewood and agricultural produce. Also, there are hundreds of internet links to state and provincial tourism offices, government websites, and many other resources so that every traveler can find out what they need to know.
This book records the first success stories of a new form of financial intermediation, the hometown investment fund, that has become a national strategy in Japan, partly to meet the need to finance small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) after the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. The hometown investment fund has three main advantages. First, it contributes to financial market stability by lowering information asymmetry. Individual households and firms have direct access to information about the borrowing firms, mainly SMEs, that they lend to. Second, it is a stable source of risk capital. The fund is project driven. Firms and households decide to invest by getting to know the borrowers and their projects. In this way the fund distributes risk but not so that it renders risk intractable, which was the problem with the "originate and distribute" model. Third, it contributes to economic recovery by connecting firms and households with SMEs that are worthy of their support. It also creates employment opportunities, at the SMEs as well as for the pool of retirees from financial institutions who can help assess the projects. Introduction of the hometown investment fund has huge global implications. The world is seeking a method of financial intermediation that minimizes information asymmetry, distributes risk without making it opaque, and contributes to economic recovery. Funds similar to Japan's hometown investment fund can succeed in all three ways. After all, the majority of the world's businesses are SMEs. The first chapter explains the theory behind this method, and the following chapters relate success stories from Japan and other parts of Asia. This book should encourage policymakers, economists, lenders, and borrowers, especially in developing countries, to adopt this new form of financial intermediation, thus contributing to global economic stability.
