(From the publisher):
Three to See the King is the tale of a man who lives in a house made of tin, set in a remote corner of the world where the wind howls and the sand blows. It is a bleak landscape but, the man assures us, he is content enough. His cozy tin home shields him from the elements, requires minimal upkeep and, best of all, is located miles from his nearest neighbor. When one day a woman arrives and moves in, his life changes abruptly and irrevocably. Neighbors come calling — first one, then another, then a third. Disruption turns to disturbance, disturbance to unrest, unrest to migration. Soon tin-dwelling people everywhere are dismantling their houses and heading off to seek the messiah of a revolutionary construction material, a master-builder who will show them a new way to live. Drawn by forces he cannot understand, much less resist, our hero joins the pilgrimage.
