Review: The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Wow! It took me a while to finish this one. I received a copy of the book from Sourcebooks Landmark via NetGalley in exchange for a review. It was a lovely love story about a Swedish girl named Sara who came to visit her older American pen-pal, Amy, only to discover that she had passed away before she arrived. She decides to stay in Amy's house for a while at the invitation of the town’s people and eventually opens a bookstore using all the books Amy left behind, in an attempt to pay back the town for their infinite generosity towards her. The town of Broken Wheel adopts Sara quickly and comes up with a plan to make her stay permanently. Sara’s story is unveiled at a slow pace and the book contains many side stories about other town’s people which in my opinion did not bring much to the plot. It is a nice and easy read nonetheless.
