"Here, Home, Hope" by Kaira Rouda Book Review

Recently I received a copy of "Here, Home, Hope" by Kaira Rouda. When I got the book, I was not sure what to expect, but I fell in love the second I started reading it.

This book is all about a stay at home mom Kelly who finds her own life while her children are gone to summer camp. She realizes that she is not happy with herself and does something to change it. Kelly starts out by seeing a therapist, but the big thing that changes in her life is when she starts her own business.

Kelly realizes that she needs self worth and that she can make money of her own. She is proud of her new business and proud of herself. It makes her a better person.

We also see her friends problems and how she helps them through it all. One friend is going through a divorce, another loses a loved one, and she even helps a friends teenage daughter battle an eating disorder.

This book was inspirational. It reminded me how we all need to not get lost in our children and make sure we have something we are proud of that is not about them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great book this summer.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from One2OneNetwork to write this review.


  1. Sounds like an interestin read.

  2. It would be nice if I could spell. Interesting would make more sense. My computer is doing funky things this morning.
