How a House Built a Family

In her new audiobook Rise, author Cara Brookins shares the unbelievable true story of how she and her four children rallied together after escaping an abusive marriage to build their dream home armed with nothing more than a small bank loan, YouTube tutorials, and the stubborn will to succeed.

It was undoubtedly the hardest thing she had ever done. With no experience nailing together anything bigger than a bookshelf, she and her kids poured concrete, framed the walls, and laid bricks for their two-story, five-bedroom house. Cara had convinced herself that if they could build a house, they could rebuild their broken family.

A must-listen memoir, Rise traces one family’s ascent from victims to stronger, better versions of themselves, all through the ultimate do-it-yourself project. Listen to an excerpt of the author-read audiobook:
