Product Description:

For as long as anyone can remember, Britt-Marie has been an acquired taste. It's not that she's judgemental, or fussy, or difficult - she just expects things to be done in a certain way. A cutlery drawer should be arranged in the right order, for example (forks, knives, then spoons). We're not animals, are we?
 
But behind the passive-aggressive, socially awkward, absurdly pedantic busybody is a woman who has more imagination, bigger dreams and a warmer heart than anyone around her realizes.
 
So when Britt-Marie finds herself unemployed, separated from her husband of 20 years, left to fend for herself in the miserable provincial backwater that is Borg - of which the kindest thing one can say is that it has a road going through it - and somehow tasked with running the local football team, she is a little unprepared. But she will learn that life may have more to offer her that she's ever realised, and love might be found in the most unexpected of places.

Comments:

I was more than thrilled to find out that Fredrik Backman released a new book. He is one of my favourite authors after I've had the pleasure of reading A Man Called Ove (one of my favourite 2016 reads!) and My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologizes (yes, his titles are always a mouthful). Stories of old people finding their way again in this world after suffering the death of their loved one or a crisis always gets me in tears and a bubbling mess of emotion! Britt-Marie Was Here tells the tale of Britt-Marie who played a significant character in My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologizes, where we last saw her heartbroken after discovering her husband's affair. This book takes place after Britt-Marie left her husband and finds herself thrust into a new situation that threw her off after 63 years of living life quietly. She finds herself in Borg and meets various kinds of misfits and outcasts, including children who are obsessed with football, and befriends them in the most unexpected ways. Truly a wonderful book! “If you can be heard then you exist.” Read my full review at: https://booklovesreviews.wordpress.com/2017/01/27/review-britt-marie-was-here-fredrik-backman/
