The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend/Katarina Bivald/394 pgs.
What a fun debut novel by this Swedish author! Sara Lindqvist travels from Sweden to meet her pen pal, Amy Harris, who happens to live in Broken Wheel, Iowa--an extremely small town that has seen better days. Upon arriving, Sara learns that she has showed up on the day of Amy's funeral. The residents don't quite know what to do with Sara, and vice versa. It's a heart warming story of a small town pulling together, and a tourist discovering herself in a most unexpected place. Highly recommended!
