This is a little bit of a detour from the books I've already posted about (I, too, get tired of reading JUST parenting books). BUT, while this book is more of a just-for-fun read, it does tell the true story of one tough Mama... like WE all are.
Rise, by Cara Brookins will take you on an emotional journey of one Mother's ups and downs that lead to the crazy idea that she could build a house with her children. She talks about some tough situations, but her writing style is easy to follow and fun to read. Definitely a page-turner!
I highly recommend it for Mamas. Especially those mamas that are feeling a little overwhelmed right now.
