By Katie Kelley Detmer

Hope and Oxygen is a very inspiring and moving book about one single mother’s attempt at creating a good and fulfilling life for herself and her kids. It is a story that will capture the reader’s attention and hold it as she goes through all the ups and downs that she faced over the years.

Katie’s first marriage sadly ended in divorce. Katie like many women who had difficult upbringings found it difficult to choose a proper partner. But she did learn what true love was over time and was able to give her kids a good upbringing that was filled with sports and many activities that taught them many important lessons. Katie makes sure that they ended up being very successful.

Katie learned a lot of important lessons along the way on her journey through life. She learned that the perfect guy doesn’t make life better. Nor does the perfect hair or perfect car. You are the one who can make things better and not repeat past mistakes. You must learn to overcome one moment at a time, one obstacle at a time, and one dream at a time.

Katie believes that life is not a destination; it is about the journey. Life is also about the people we meet and the friends that we cultivate. We have a choice to create happiness and experience life to the fullest. We will encounter disappointment along the way, but how we handle hardships will reveal our character. We all have stories, and some of us have painful stories. But Katie believes that we should never give up but we should find the will to go on. What a hopeful message for women!

Thank you, Katie for such a wonderfully hopeful and inspiring book. I truly admire your journey and I will pass your book on to all the women that I know who are currently struggling with difficulties of different kinds.

Rating: 5 stars
