I read this book quite a few years ago. In fact, it was my first Oprah book introduced to me by a friend. I had never read a book that Oprah had recommended and was worried that it would not be for me. Boy was I wrong!!! Many Oprah picks later, here I am -- much more well read and thankful for her many amazing recommendations!
Anyways, about this book -- after reading the description, I thought that it was going to be a cheesy book. Afterall, it is about a young girl who ends up living in Walmart and giving birth within the store. Seriously, Walmart?!? Well, that is only a portion of this story. There is so much more to it than that -- about a community coming together, about complete strangers willing to accept and take in an outsider, about what is truly important in life -- family (not necessarily family of blood-relation, however!). Though I thought it was going to be a silly waste of my time to read this book, it ended up being one of the sweetest books I have ever read. If anyone is looking for a quick read that will warm your heart, this is definitely the one.
