Made for You and Me
Going West, Going Broke, Finding HomeBook - 2011
So, a year after they'd set out with big plans, Caitlin and Dan packed up again, this time with a baby on board, to make their way home to move in with Caitlin's mother. As they drove, Caitlin blogged about their situation and created audio diaries for NPR's Weekend Edition --and received an astounding response. From all across the country, listeners offered help, opening their hearts and their homes. And when the young family arrived back in rural Maine and squeezed into Caitlin's mother's small saltbox house, Caitlin learned that the bonds of family run deeper than any tug to roam, and that, with love, she and Dan could hold their dreams in sight, wherever they were.
Made for You and Me captures the irrepressible spirit and quiet perseverance of one small family--and offers to share that strength with any reader willing to make the journey.

Being a newlywed that is short on funds, this book struck a chord with me. Despite the fact that the book is based on a litany of unfortunate things happening to Caitlin and her husband, her story didn't come across as whiny. I found it an inspiring and enjoyable read.
