Throwback Thursday is a meme created by Renee at It’s Book Talk to share old favorite books rather than just the new shiny ones. This is a great idea to bring back to life some much-loved books. Please feel free to join in.
My choice for this week is:
Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts
I loved this book!!!
Usually having read a book so long ago, I can’t remember much about it. However, that is not the case with this book. I read it in 1999 when I was pregnant with my daughter, and it seems just like yesterday.
The main character, Novalee Nation is a pregnant 17-year-old girl who is abandoned by her boyfriend in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart. Novalee is such a great character, so easy to love and root for.
This was such a unique and heartwarming read. A gripping page-turner with so much heart!
This wonderful book has stayed with me all these years. I can’t wait to read it again.
