Where Home Is brings alongthe heart from Lily's Sister and Waiting for Hope to the story ofKatherine Davis, a young doctor who has just graduated from Kansas Medical School. She's thinkingabout returning to her Wyominghome and practicing there, when an opportunity comes along: One of herprofessors offers her a yearlong posting at the famous Hull-House, where socialworker Jane Addams works among Chicago'spoor and immigrants.
Katherineaccepts and soon is at work helping bewildered new mothers, destitute women andeven a prostitute who has been beaten by her customer. She befriends an abusedgirl with a promising soprano voice, and accompanies Addams to a ball wherethey chat up rich potential sponsors. There she meets Douglas Gallagher, whobegins squiring her around. What follows could be a conventional love story,but not in Hasley's capable hands.
Katherine,of course, is independent-minded, but not just ''contrary'' for the purposes ofconflict in the story. Douglas is generous andattentive, but doesn't seem to ''get'' her; his reckless brother is moreperceptive. A visit from Katherine's parents and the end of her Hull-Houseassignment help her realize what she really wants. The conclusion istear-inducing, but feels heartfelt, not manipulated, and the historicalreferences are spot-on."

About the Author
Do you recognize these American women? Jane Addams. Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Dr. Alice Hamilton. Dr. Kate W. Barrett. Donaldina Cameron. Gertrude Stein. Mary Cassatt. You'll find them all - and then some - in Karen's books, which intertwine the lives of fictional heroines and historical real-life women so closely and convincingly that you may need to check a history book to figure out which is which.
Hasley's 6-book Laramie Series spans the years between 1880 and 1919 with satisfying stories from America's past, each with a competent, courageous woman at its center. The books can stand independently and be enjoyed in any order. One reviewer wrote that "Hasley's impeccable writing" offered a "satisfying read from beginning to end."(ABJ, 2006)
The author's first stand-alone novel "The Dangerous Thaw of Etta Capstone" was a quarter finalist for Amazon's 2013Breakthrough Novel of the Year, the PW review stating that it was "subtle and effective." "Magnificent Farewell," a second stand-alone novel set during World War One, was a "highly recommended" Finalist in the 2016 Wishing Shelf Book Awards.
In 2014, Karen offered readers a trio of light-hearted Victorian romances. The Penwarrens Series ~ made up of "Claire, After All," "Listening to Abby," and "Jubilee Rose" ~ is the author's affectionate, admiring homage to Georgette Heyer.
Karen returned to America's heartland in 2017 with the first book of a new series set in 19th-century New Hope, Nebraska. As readers have come to expect, "What We Carry With Us" offers mystery, history, and romance with an engaging, strong-minded woman at its center.
Remarkable women. Unforgettable stories. All in historical settings.
