Part of the Kate Humble series

'A celebration of people who live a life less ordinary' - Country Living'A discovery of what makes us feel we belong' - Yours Magazine'From crofts to castles...

Where the Hearth Is explores what makes a home. It's hard to define, but drawing on the stories of those she meets, everyone knows when they have found it.' - The ScotsmanWhat is it about a place that makes us feel truly home?

Kate Humble has a knack for sharing her own journey towards a more pleasing and purposeful life in a way that inspires readers, enables them to reassess their own lives and helps them achieve their personal goals.

Having encouraged readers to reconnect with nature in Thinking on My Feet and simplify their lifestyles in A Year of Living Simply, she turns now to reimagining whatever we consider 'home' - examining her own experiences and expectations, ideals and memories, and considering the views of others living uniquely, extraordinarily, happily. And she's gaining insights from some unexpected quarters - including the animal kingdom. As our time spent in office buildings and other traditional workplaces shrinks forevermore, feeling happy, healthy, productive and content in our homes (be they castles or caravans, flat-shares or farms, fixed or temporary, inner city/out of town/beyond) is more important to get right than ever before.

Where the Hearth Is will resonate with all those seeking to make the most of their lives during the many hours we all spend at home - whether it's a case of tiny adjustments while staying put, moving out, living differently or dreaming of building something new.
