Has anyone read this? It was really good! I've read three books this week while I'm off, and this one I want to go back and read again already.

    Yes I read it back when Oprah picked as one of her book club books(1997). I remember it being just an ok read for me.

    If I had known Oprah picked it, I probably wouldn't have read it. :lol: I should have known, though, since my sister loves all thins Oprah! My sister gave me five books to read over the break and I finished three. I'll have to examine the cover to see if there are any other O picks.

    I loved it, though! I have so many people with mental illness (disguised as religious zealots or fanatics) that parts of the book were sad and other parts hilarious. I LOVED the grandma. I think one of my grandma's would have been like her from what I've learned from stories. She died when I was about 3, so I don't remember her. My other grandma apparently would have been the pastor.

    Also, who resist a church with a name like that?
