Synopsis

How many of us have a desire to make a home of a neglected building that is begging to be restored to its former splendour? This is just such a story - the renovation of a derelict windmill and in the process the discovery of a fascinating history. It charts the realization of a young boy's dream and, despite the numerous obstacles and problems, the successful culmination of many hopes and plans. The reader is invited to share with the author his hopes, worries, triumphs and setbacks as he strives to make the dream a reality. The saying "to throw one's cap over the windmill" means to act recklessly and provides an apt title for the book, reflecting Kenneth's impetuous pursuit of the propety which he secured and restored, seemingly against the odds.
