I was lucky enough to receive an advanced reader copy of Britt-Marie Was Here: A Novel
from Atria books, and now I know what to get the difficult people to shop for this year for birthday gifts. Britt-Marie was Here is certainly amongst the best books that will be released this year. I say this remark with confidence, despite the fact that it is almost March – the novel is that good.
Britt-Marie and the town of Borg in which she tries to make a fresh start in life as a woman in her sixties are well-drawn and lovable characters. This novel is realistic, heartbreaking, heartfelt, and full of hope. And you should read it.
That is all I want to say about this novel, because I think it’s best if you simply pick it up and read it for yourself. Which you can do May 3rd, when it is released. Happy reading!
