Review quote

"Kelle Hampton...reminds us that life may not always look pretty or perfect, but it is always beautiful.... She has indeed made of her life something 'wild and precious' and her book, like her two beautiful girls, is a bundle of joy. I finished it reluctantly and with a full heart."--Claire Fontaine, national bestselling author of Come Back: A Mother and Daughter's Journey Through Hell and Back

Review Text

"Bloom is one of the most emotionally stirring books I've ever read.... This story is a reminder that perfect, when it comes to human beings, is such a relative (and irrelevant) term...and that a mother's love for her child is a powerful, eternal, unshakable force." Ree Drummond, New York Times bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
