Where the Heart Is
By: Billie Letts
Book Review By: Rodnesia Walker
Living in a small, country city named Sequoyah, Novalee is introduced to a lot of people to help her overcome her struggles. A brown-headed, christian affiliated lady named Sister Husband offers her a place to stay in her two bedroom trailer. Novalee also comes attached to a genuine librarian named Forney, who fills Novalee's brain with plenty of knowledge.
If you love drama affiliated books/movies, this is the perfect book for you. I highly recommend this book because it uses a lot of imagery and it keeps the reader focused and wanting to read more. My favorite part is when Novalee meets Forney. He shows her that he loves her more than she loves herself. My least favorite part is when Novalee got stranded at Wal-Mart because she was new to the town without a place to stay. If I could change something about this book, Novalee's daughter wouldn't be called Americus.
This was a welcoming gift from a little boy named Benny Goodluck. Novalee cared for this tree since she moved to Oklahoma. It was told that it brings good luck.
Novalee lived in Walmart for almost three months before Sister Husband took her in her home.
This is the young mother who is struggling day by day to survive living in a store.
