Summary
Jonas Ebeneser is a handy DIY kind of man with a compulsion to fix things, but he can't seem to fix his own life. On the cusp of turning fifty, divorced and lonely with nothing much to live for; Jonas decides to buy a one-way ticket to somewhere, anywhere, with no intention of returning. In a city devastated by war he books a room at the sparsely occupied Hotel Silence and there he comes to understand the depths of other people's scars -- realizing that he holds the tools to mend their homes as well as their broken spirits -- while beginning to see his wounds in a new light. A celebration of life's infinite possibilities, of transformations and second chances, Hotel Silence is a rousing story of a man, a community, and a path toward regeneration from the depths of despair
