A Book to Read this Summer: Here, Home, Hope by Kaira Rouda

Reading a book is a great way to relax, take some time for yourself, and maybe even find yourself thinking about another time or place in life.  The latest book I read was;    Here, Home, Hope  written by Kaira Rouda.  Her web site is .  The story centers around Kelly Mills Johnson, she is married to a successful attorney, has two boys, and  a dog named Oreo.
