Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The popular pro-life movie Bella is prepared to make another nationwide impact as the film has been turned into a novel that is available at bookstores across the country. The novel provides a more in-depth look at the movie and the characters who have touched millions of lives.

As a movie, Bella took on some of the giants of the summer season in 2007, earning more ticket sales per theater than some of the most popular movies at the time.

Then, Bella became the most popular pre-sell DVD in its category at Amazon.com after the movie went to video.

Now, the producers of the film tell LifeNews.com about the latest chapter in the Bella saga.

"Bella has become such an amazing phenomenon that book publisher Thomas Nelson and award-winning author Lisa Samson decided to adapt the Bella story onto the written page and make it available in both English and Spanish," Bella producers Sean Wolfington and Leo Severino said.

"The novel allows moviegoers who loved Bella on the big screen — and those just discovering the film — to dig even deeper into the characters and story," they said.

"Best-selling author Lisa Samson adds depth and dimension impossible to capture on-screen so that readers can experience this heartwarming tale in a new and more complete way," they added.

They said the purchase of the DVD and the book together provide Bella fans with the most complete experience the story behind the movie.

Included in the novel is a fascinating look behind the scenes with photos from the film, a reading group guide and a note from Lisa Samson.
