    Billy Beede, comes home one day to find a fateful letter waiting for her: Willa Mae's burial is about to be plowed up to make way for a supermarket. As Willa Mae's only daughter, Billy is heiress to her mother's substantial but unconfirmed fortune. Dirt poor, living in a trailer with her Aunt June and Uncle Roosevelt behind a gas station in a tumbleweedy Texas town, and pregnant with an illegitimate child, Billy knows that treasure could mean salvation.

    Andrew says: "Just a warning..."
    "Beautiful, heart-wrenching, subtle"
    Overall

    I can't understand the narrow-mindedness of some of the reviews above. This is not John Grisham or Danielle Steele. This is equisitely-written, subtle and beautiful character portraits and a fully-realized, 3-dimensional plot with real lives and real people. Don't expect an action flick or a cheesy romance. There's a reason she won the Pullitzer Prize.
