Currently Reading: Where The Heart Is by
I am a little over halfway through the novel and so far the movie is a good representation of the book. Sure there are some differences, but overall they tell the same story.
It has much more depth than the book. It is sugary sweet, but in a refreshing way.
It’s a very fast read. You sit down to read a few pages and suddenly you are almost finished. It is engaging and hard to put down.
Where the Heart Is: Talk about unlucky sevens. Seventeen-year-old, seven months pregnant Novalee Nation was heading for California with her boyfriend. Stranded at a Wal-Mart in Sequoyah, Oklahoma, with just $7.77 in change, Novalee is now homeless. In Oklahoma Novalee finds 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 on a moving, funny, and unforgettable journey to . . . Where the Heart Is.
