Cara is an elegant warrior with a hammer. She took her four kids (ages 2-17), left her abusive husband and decided to build a home. From scratch. By watching YouTube. Cara’s memoir about that endeavor is “Rise-How a House Built a Family”. It is a best selling book and was chosen by President Clinton as one of the books on his reading list. It is also going to be made into a motion picture!
