Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
I have a very spoken rule that I refuse to watch the movie until I’ve read the book. Having said, that, this is one I failed on. I don’t know if I knew that initially though. It was one of my favorite movies while I was in high school though, so I knew I couldn’t go the rest of my life without reading the book as well. If you haven’t read (or watched) this one, I highly recommend it.
*This is a women’s Fiction book but not Christian Fiction*
About the Book:
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.
