The year is 1950, and in a small town on CapeÂ Â Cod twenty-six-year-old librarian Peggy Cort feelsÂ Â like love and life have stood her up. Until theÂ Â day James Carlson Sweatt--the "over tall"Â Â eleven-year-old boy who's the talk of theÂ Â town--walks into her library and changes her life forever.Â Â Two misfits whose lonely paths cross at theÂ Â circulation desk, Peggy and James are odd candidates forÂ Â friendship, but nevertheless they soon find theirÂ Â lives entwined in ways that neither one could haveÂ Â predicted. In James, Peggy discovers the oneÂ Â person who's ever really understood her, and as heÂ Â grows--six foot five at age twelve, then seven feet,Â Â then eight--so does her heart and their mostÂ Â singular romance.The Giant's HouseÂ Â is an unforgettably tender and quirky novel aboutÂ Â learning to welcome the unexpected miracle, andÂ Â about the strength of choosing to love in a worldÂ Â that gives no promises, and no guarantees.
