From one of America's best-loved storytellers - the author of the New York Times bestseller WHERE THE HEART IS - comes a tale of a small Oklahoma town and the mystery that has haunted its residents for years. In 1972, windswept DeClare, Oklahoma, was consumed by the murder of a young mother, Gaylene Harjo, and the disappearance of her baby, Nicky Jack. When the child's pajama bottoms were discovered on the banks of Willow Creek, everyone feared that he, too, had been killed, although his body was never found.

Talk about unlucky sevens. An hour ago, seventeen-year-old, seven months pregnant Novalee Nation was heading for California with her boyfriend. Now she finds herself stranded at a Wal-Mart in Sequoyah, Oklahoma, with just $7.77 in change. But Novalee is about to discover hidden treasures in this small Southwest town--a group of down-to-earth, deeply caring people willing to help a homeless, jobless girl living secretly in a Wal-Mart. From Bible-thumping blue-haired Sister Thelma Husband to eccentric librarian Forney Hull who loves Novalee more than she loves herself, they are about to take her--and you, too--on a moving, funny, and unforgettable journey to . . . Where the Heart Is.

I grew up watching the movie version of Where the Heart Is over and over with my mother. I always knew it was based on a book, but didn't pick it up til now.

This was one of those darn good, wholesome reads, especially if you've ever been a mother, ever felt lost in life, have ever needed a little luck, or have ever hurt yourself for love. I laughed and cried right along side Novalee Nation, as she grew up and pulled herself up by her bootstraps and plunged through constant turmoil, heartbreak, and hope. Definitely worth a read.

Side note: However, though I'm not sure about the printed version, the digital version is poorly edited/transcribed, and there are constant spelling and grammatical errors. Try to gloss over that and focus on the story, but it IS pretty annoying, especially when it happens throughout most of the pivotal moments in the story.

Where the Heart is by Billie Letts is an old book - and by that I mean it came out when I was in my sophomore year of high school, which was a very, very long time ago. The librarian, Mrs. Wu, would order books and she'd tell me to read them. I happily did, even when they were not to my taste, and even years later, I would come back to thinking about different aspects of the books, even those I had not liked.

I am a writer by trade, and this blog is just something I do for funsies, for now. It gives me a break from the "have to" writing to write something I want - just blurt onto the page. Well, long story short, for one of my clients, something I was working on sparked a recollection of this book and I got a hankering to read it again. I ordered it, it showed up, I read it start to finish within about an hour.

It's a light read. In spite of this, there's something about this book that will get you to thinking. And that "thing" - whatever it may be, changes depending on what your mindset is when you read it. Even all these decades later, it's still a good book. I'd put it in the same category as Fried Green Tomatoes - it's the same type of book. Different subject matter, different setting, but the same type of book, if that makes sense. It's a good book, but I can't much say more than that without giving something away.

Going to write the review tonight (as I post the book reviews on Goodreads and Amazon in addition to here) - I found out something else. Turns out this one was made into a movie with a very, very young Natalie Portman - pre degree. And now I'm going to have to find that one to watch to see how well it holds up to the book.

It's hard to not compare this to the movie (which is one of my favorites though I generally stay away from chick lit). But this is a Great book! It was close enough to the movie that I didn't gat made at a total reimagining but different enought to keep me interested. Characters in the book that weren't in the movie were great and the character development of each was phenomenal. They were so well written that at some points I stopped picturing Natalie Portman, Stockard Channing and The cast and they became their own people which is rare when you've become so familiar with those faces in relation to the character. It shows just how well written and thought out the characters are. I enjoyed this so much I plan to read more of Oprahs picks and will be using this book for my book club and will have a movie night with the girls to follow.

Amazon recommended Billie Letts to me because I like Fannie Flagg's books so much. I have read all of Fannie Flagg's books now, never had heard of Billie Letts, but decided to try her. I can see why Amazon relates the two writers: Both write about slightly offbeat characters and both writers will tug at your heartstrings towards the end. I consider Fannie Flagg to be much superior - funnier with characters that while offbeat are nevertheless recognizable. But Where the Heart Is is the second of Billie Letts' books I've read now (the first was The Honk and Holler Opening Soon) and I enjoyed both books. While the characters may be somewhat two-dimensional as a critical review suggested , they are characters that I found myself caring about within a page or two. I do wish that not every character had a name that was too cute by half - I found that alienating. The book is primarily plot-driven. Don't read this book if you are looking for high literature. It isn't that. I would suggest that you not read it if you are male since it is hard for me to imagine a male liking it. But if you are a female who is in the mood to read a book that is entertaining and touching with enough plot twists to keep you interested, I would recommend this book. It's kind of like ice cream: you know there are more nourishing things out there and you know you enjoy those more nourishing things, too - but every now and then something sweet is nice.
