“Although the content of this book isn’t new, the reminder to love more, love better, and love longer will never grow old. Martin writes that “our homes are meant to shelter us, but they never truly will until they shelter others too” (94). Especially after sheltering-in-place and living in fear of one another during the pandemic, society can find itself stiff from inactivity and out of practice in connecting with the humans all around us. This book is a wake-up call to stretch our legs and intentionally form stronger attachments with the people who live in closest proximity to us—our neighbors.”
