My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I first read this book a long time ago after seeing the movie, with Natalie Portman who played Novalee Nation. Natalie Portman became one of my favorite actors and I had to read the book after watching the movie. P.S., it didn’t disappoint!
Where the Heart Is is a soft, heart warming story. I love the pacing and tone throughout the book. There is a trustful tone set from start to finish that allows the reader to have faith that everything will work out in the end. I love that Letts was able to create this tone as it helps develop the characters. I really recommend the movie to everyone and to give the book a shot. I just love the story and its one of my favorites!
