“The New York Times and USA Today Bestseller
Once you let a book into your life, the most unexpected things can happen...
Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her book-loving pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds Amy's funeral guests just leaving. The residents of Broken Wheel are happy to look after their bewildered visitor-there's not much else to do in a dying small town that's almost beyond repair.
You certainly wouldn't open a bookstore. And definitely not with the tourist in charge. You'd need a vacant storefront (Main Street is full of them), books (Amy's house is full of them), and...customers.
The bookstore might be a little quirky. Then again, so is Sara. But Broken Wheel's own story might be more eccentric and surprising than she thought.
A heartwarming reminder of why we are booklovers, this is a sweet, smart story about how books find us, change us, and connect us.” Amazon
My Book Club read this book for November. We had read two heavy – deep – depressing books in September and decided our books for October and November should be more enjoyable and in both months we hit it out of the ballpark!!
Who doesn’t enjoy books about books? Books about Bookstores? Too much fun!!!
Readers will understand the last line on the book’s cover:
“A heartwarming reminder of why we are booklovers, this is a sweet smart story about how books find us, change us and connect us.”
In our discussion of this book we talked about books that had changed our lives – or they at least gave us what we needed at the time we read them.
So many books have made an impact on me over the years – as they have for most readers. As a child I always had my nose in a book – well, actually, my whole life I’ve had my nose in books!! But when I was young – an only child until 12, living in the country with no children living anywhere near us – I spent my days reading and then acting out the books. The adventures I took! I filled those summer days on boats, rafts, on southern plantations, and so many places I can’t even remember and as I do remember I know I could go on and on.
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend brings to life many characters you will love but it also shows how books connect us in ways we could never imagine!
If you want a feel good book about books. About a very special book store – pick this one up. It’s also GREAT for book clubs.
