November Book Club Selection – Where the Heart Is

We had our Christmas Supper and book club meeting at Kathy’s Place on December 8th, 2009. For supper we had Turkey and all the trimmings plus delicious desserts.

where the heart isAfter we had supper, we discussed our November book club selection, Where the Heart is by Billie Letts. Everyone enjoyed this book and we all thought it was an easy read and a great story.

This is the story of Novalee Nation, who at age 17, and 7 months pregnant was dropped off at the Wal-mart in Sequoyah, Oklahoma with only $7.77 in change, by her boyfriend, Willy Jack Pickens.

Novalee meets 3 people her first day at the Wal-mart store, who later are there for her when she is in need and become her best friends. At the town library she meets the town librarian, Forney Hull, who introduces Novalee to the world of books and becomes a very important person in her and her child’s live.

After our meeting we exchanged gifts.

In December we will be reading This Year Will be Different by Maeve Binchy.
