Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Britt-Marie Was Here is a sort of spin-off of My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry but it can be read as a standalone. It is an incredibly sweet story. While in My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry, Britt-Marie is a busy-body nag, in this novel her character is much better developed. It turns out that she is so much more than she appears. Her relationships with the people of Borg made me laugh, cry, cheer, and everything in between. It is a story of loss, hope, second chances, resilience, and self-discovery. I enjoyed this story from start to finish.
