Under one roof

Lerman, Philip, author

Edith Macefield achieved folk hero status in 2006 when she turned down $1 million to sell her home to make way for a commercial development in a small neighbourhood of Seattle. It didn't matter that her tiny house was surrounded by rubble and graffiti. Barry Martin respected that, and when he took the job as construction supervisor for the shopping mall that was being erected around Edith's little house, he determined to make things as easy as he could for Edith. He gave her his phone number and told her to call if she needed anything. The day Edith asked Barry to drive her to a hair appointment, an unlikely friendship was sparked, one that changed them both forever
