Rise is the story of how a woman overcame obstacles in order to build her dream home for her and her kids! After escaping a third and abusive marriage, Cara Brookins is desperate to provide a home for her four kids but doesn't have the means to buy one. It takes a trip for Cara to come up with a plan to build their own home with only the help of YouTube, a small bank loan and her kids as a work crew. As they build the house, they learn they are tougher than what tried to break them in the perfect ending for anyone who wants to just do better for themselves and their children!
This was a very good book that goes to show that if you make your mind up, you can do anything that is possible! My only problem with this book was the fact that it kept going from earlier years to present day without warning which gets confusing after awhile. Other than that, it was a good book that makes you think about how she was able to overcome horrible marriages to finding a place that she can be herself without having to look over her shoulder all the time!
Thank You to Cara Brookins for telling your story so that maybe someone will read this and get the courage to do the same as you did in overcoming a tragic past!
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher!
