The average restless American will move 11 times in their life. Studies show the very idea of home resonates with our deepest emotions. But what makes a home? And do the memories of our experiences at home influence who we become? We explore the theme, definition, cultural significance and media portrayals of home through two new books: "This is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are" by Melody Warnick, and "This Is The Place: Women Writing About Home," edited by Margot Kahn and Kelly McMasters.
