Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a long history of bad luck when it comes to sevens, Novalee Nation is 17, seven months pregnant, 37 pounds overweight, and on her way from Tennessee to a new life in California. While making a stop in eastern Oklahoma, her no-good boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her at a local Wal-Mart, leaving her stranded with only $7.77 in her pocket. But Novalee soon discovers the hidden treasures in this small Southwest town as a group of down-to-earth, deeply caring people is willing to help a homeless, jobless girl. From Bible-thumping blue-haired Sister Thelma Husband to eccentric librarian Forney Hull, Novalee embarks on a moving, funny, and unforgettable journey to where the heart is.

This wondrous tale of life, love, and the indomitable spirit of one unforgettable girl in this feel-good novel will leave readers cheering for more.

Synopsis:
