I Loved this book, it's gives you true meaning of family and frienship. The author does a good job at communicating love, hope, and conpassion. This is a book about overwhelming hardships, healing broken hearts and overcoming struggles. The true meaning of "home and "family" are revelled to us through this novel. The theme of "home" continues throughout the novel. Home is a state of mind, or as Sister Husband always says "a place where your history begins." Novalee has neither of these and becomes part of, and is loved by everyone in her new "family". The book shows that when disregarding the traditional ideal of a family (mother/father/children) love, happiness and caring is still possible.
