Here, Home, Hope Book Review

About Here, Home, Hope:

Here, Home, Hope by author Kaira Rouda is the fictional story of one woman's courageous journey through midlife crisis and personal reinvention - all told with a sense of heart and humor.

Kelly Mills Johnson becomes restless in her thirty-ninth year. An appetite for more, forces her to take stock of her ordinary middle-American existence and her neighbors’ seemingly perfect lives. Her marriage to a successful attorney has settled into a comfortable routine, and being the mother of two adorable sons has been rewarding but exhausting. Meanwhile, Kelly’s own passions lie wasted. She eyes with envy the lives of her two best friends, Kathryn and Charlotte, both beautiful, successful businesswomen who seem to have it all. Kelly takes charge of her life, devising a midlife makeover plan.

Here, Home, Hope will surely appeal to readers of chick lit and other women’s fiction titles who are ready to transition into something new in their own life.


I wasn't really sure about this book at first...but that was my own issue. I am used to only reading Christian fiction, so this was a leap for me. But it really didn't take long before I got into it and it was hard to stop reading. It was a delightful read, and very close to home. As someone who is also going through a lot of changes in her life right now, it was a great reminder of what we can do to better our lives. It came at a great time for me. It was truly stuff I needed to remind me of life and how to cope. It also was nice to know that even though the character was fictional, the mind it came from was not, and it was nice to know that there are other women out there who feel similar to how I feel. What a relief to know that I am not alone! I would suggest this book to any woman...not just a woman going through major changes in her life...but any woman. I truly believe that ANY woman can relate to this character in one way or another.
