This is a book that once you start reading you can't put it back down......when you read this book you will fall in love with Novalee Nation. As you read you will see how Novalee raises her baby. This is definately a book worth reading...and really recommend that you read it if you haven't read it already!!!

I am so glad I started this book on a Saturday, I read all night, I simply could not put the book down. I realized some times around 4:30am that as my cheeks were wet with tears, I was also smiling and laughing. The story was so well told I was absorbed in it. Now I am just looking for other of Billie Letts' book. I want this exsperience again.


I love this book. I love the movie as well. i think that this book has a
lot of meaning to it. I would definantly recommend this book for those
who likeheart warming storis.

I loved this book. i just couldn't put in down. i recommend it to anyone who asks me

this book was so exciting that i read it in one day it's a great book for those who enjoy realistic fiction i liked because i was able to relate to some of the emotions that the main character went through it was so amazing i hope billy comes out with more books like this

A Great Story is the only thing I have to say.
