About the Book

The only question Jack Nesteby really had to answer was-- can a house, simply by the way it’s designed, cure depression? Jack was a young hotshot reporter for a Canadian magazine that specialized in residential architecture. No problem, right? All he had to do was find and interview Mr. Jeremy Cander (the architect) and then visit one of these houses to draw his own conclusions. Jack had his doubts, but he was up to the challenge. The task seemed simple enough, but something happened to Jack after he arrived in New Ulm, Minnesota, and ‘simple’ was no longer a word in his vocabulary. The truth was that Jeremy Cander had built his home design on a mountain of personal tragedy, and the town of New Ulm was about to change Jack’s life forever. Her name was Susan Morgan. It only took three weeks for Jack to lose his way in New Ulm, Minnesota. What he found was enough joy and sadness to last a lifetime.

About the Author

Dennis Glawe DO, FAAFP, is a Board-Certified Family Practice physician with 24 years of medical experience. The idea for this book was planted when the Iowa Legislature began discussing a proposal requiring parental notification prior to a minor (under age 18) obtaining an abortion. Now it’s a law. Although this story is not a platform for or against abortion, it does center on the emotional consequences of abortion and how it creates and destroys relationships.

Dennis was born and raised in Northeast Iowa growing up on a farm near St. Olaf. He attended Elkader High School, Upper Iowa University in Fayette, Iowa, and graduated from the College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, Des Moines, Iowa in 1977. He completed his residency at Eisenhower Army Medical Center, Fort Gordon, Georgia, and spent three years as a staff physician at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He returned to private practice in Northeast Iowa in 1983 and has been with Gundersen Clinic since 1988.

Currently, Dennis lives in Decorah, Iowa with his wife Marcia. They have two children, Erin, a junior at Winona State University, and John (autistic) who lives in a residential facility in Charles City and is a senior in high school. Dennis enjoys reading, writing, and photography when time permits.
