The movie "Where the Heart Is" which is based off of this book has been a favorite of mine for years, so I was eager to get this and read it.

The book is truly a gem in its own league. Quirky characters set in normal country towns will remind you of the "funny guy down the street" and your "crazy Aunt" you see at family reunions. The familiarity of everyday life is what makes this book endearing. The movie sticks incredibly close to the story line of the book, but the famous one liners are even more frequent in the paperback version.

A must read ... 5 stars.
