I went into this book expecting a cute, quick read. I was right on the quick part, but it was far more than just cute. This is a book that grabs your heart and tugs every which way while the characters live their lives the best they can and learn how to love and trust again.

I loved this book. The impossibility of the situations yet the likely hood that it could happen. the characters are wonderful and you feel along with them.

Of course the book is better than the movie, but if you are in the mood for a "feel good" ending, this is for you! A young woman, pregnant, and deserted in an unfamiliar town finds friendship and support and eventually love, by her own acts of kindness and goodness. I think it should be mandatory for teen age girls to read. You will love it!

This book is so much better then the movie. And the movie is one of the great ones on my list!! Novalee Nation finds her way through life just like we all do. However, her story seems a little harder then most. Such a well written story that will make you laugh, cry and feel like you want to go to Sequoyah Oklahoma just to see if it could be home for you too.

I haven't seen the movie and after reading the book i'm glad. I truly enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure this would be a book I could get into but boy was I wrong. Hooray to the author and main character for a book that truly reminded me where the heart is.
