Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman

Find in catalogBritt-Marie Was Here was a fun read. It takes place in present-day England. The main character, Britt-Marie, is 63 years old and sets out to find a job after being a homemaker for most of her adult life. She is a bit of an odd, yet appealing, character. As the narrative draws the reader into her world you can’t help but be hopeful, for Britt-Marie in her small and peculiar ways is making a difference. At first it is by making the world around her a cleaner place. Later she improves the lives of the people in the small, economically depressed town in which she finds her job. I found this book on the lucky day rack and I recommend you place a hold on the on-line system if you can’t find a copy on the shelf. It will be worth your wait. Enjoy!
