The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This isn't really a book about books, as the official synopsis says, but it is about how books can bring together a town and a group of vastly different people. Sara, a young single woman from Sweden has been writing Amy, an older woman from Broken Wheel, Iowa about books. Encouraged to visit Amy's hometown, Sara comes to Broken Wheel to meet Amy and the people that she has been reading about in her letters. As it turns out, Broken Wheel is not quite what Sara expected and she is forced to lean on the residents to help her out since her host has passed away. Soon Sara opens a bookstore in the dilapidated town, bringing mystery, excitement, and love into their sad world.
This is a very quirky book, reminiscent of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Fun characters and a happy ending.
