On sale May 3, 2016
The New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove and My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry returns with an irresistible novel about a reluctant outsider who transforms a tiny village--and in turn finds love and second chances in the unlikeliest places.
At sixty-three, Britt-Marie's orderly life is upended when she leaves her philandering husband and takes a job in the small derelict town of Borg. There, against her better nature, she finds herself being pulled into the daily doings of her fellow citizens, an odd assortment of miscreants, drunkards, and layabouts--and a handsome local policeman whose romantic attentions to Britt-Marie are as unmistakable as they are unwanted. In this town of misfits, can Britt-Marie finally find a place where she belongs?
With charm and wit, Britt-Marie Was Here celebrates the ways in which even the gentlest of spirits can change the world for the better.
Yay!!! I loved Backman's debut novel, A Man Called Ove, which I read last May and reviewed here. I can't wait to read this new novel and I still want to get a copy of his second book. How about you? Have you read any of this beloved author's books? If you're planning to attend BEA, you'll be happy to know that Fredrik will be appearing! I wish I could be there.
