#MMBBR #Review Wish Me Home by @kaybratt #LakeUnionPublishing

Wish Me Home by [Bratt, Kay]
In her first work of contemporary women’s fiction, bestselling author Kay Bratt draws on her own life experiences to create a raw, yet inescapably warm, novel about friendship and a wary heart’s unexpected capacity to love.
A hungry, stray dog is the last thing Cara Butter needs. Stranded in Georgia with only her backpack and a few dwindling dollars, she already has too much baggage. Like her twin sister, Hana, who has broken Cara’s heart one too many times. After a lifetime of family troubles, and bouncing from one foster home to another, Cara decides to leave it all behind and strike out alone—on foot.
Cara sets off to Florida to see the home of her literary hero, Ernest Hemingway, accompanied only by Hemi, the stray dog who proves to be the perfect travel companion. But the harrowing trip takes unexpected turns as strangers become friends who make her question everything, and Cara finds that as the journey unfolds, so does her life—in ways she could never imagine.

#FirstLine ~ Don't turn around and look, she told herself.

A story about love and finding new footing while breaking away from old ways.  This is a book that has a whole lot of heart and allows the reader to feel a sense of hope upon completion.  Not that the story does not focus on the toughness of life, because it does, but it also captures the goodness in life too...the kindnesses, the friendships and tthe fact that family is not always blood relation.  I adored the dog in this book (I want the dog from this book) and the love that formed throughout the book.  It was one of those books that I really wish Hallmark would make into a movie.  I can see it playing on TV and keeping the story very true to the book...readers, or viewers, would love this story because it is tender, honest and hopeful!  A great book to snuggle up and read this spring or summer!

Kay Bratt

Kay Bratt is the author of eleven full-length novels and two children’s books. Her writing became her solace and support while she navigated a tumultuous childhood, followed by a decade of abuse as an adult. After working her way through the hard years, Kay came out a survivor and a pursuer of peace—and finally found the courage to share her stories. A wise man once told her to “write what you know,” which resulted in Kay’s pet project and her bestselling series, The Tales of the Scavenger’s Daughters.
