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 http://www.kairarouda.com/.  The story centers around Kelly Mills Johnson, she is married to a successful attorney, has two boys, and  a dog named Oreo. Living in a nice house in a nice neighborhood she is a Mom and housewife. Her children are in Maine for the Summer at Camp, her days are spent doing the everyday things until her friends and neighbors lives impact hers and she discovers the old and new Kelly Mills Johnson. Her home becomes a place where her friends and neighbors come to visit, she connects with old friends, and takes on a teenage girl for the Summer.  In the midst of all this visitation, she finds herself in a new career that fits her well and with the support of her husband her new life begins.
As a mom and a person, some of her life I can relate to; the daily life of being a Mom, taking care of the kids and house, and thinking about what you might do with your life as the children get older and your time requirements change. Her life and how it and changes can leave you thinking about what you can do or change in your own life!  The unexpected comes her way, and what happens next- each time makes her stronger and wiser. Someting I like.   During the book Kelly keeps a list with notes of things she hope to accomplish, good idea! The end of the book offers the complete list, and some questions to ask yourself and to ponder about.
