Book of the Month: “The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend” by Katarina Bivald.

“Sara is 28 and has never been outside Sweden–except in the many books she reads. When her elderly pen pal Amy invites her to come and visit her in Broken Wheel, Iowa, Sara decides it’s time. But when she arrives, there’s a twist waiting for her–Amy has died. Finding herself alone in the middle of nowhere was not the holiday Sara had in mind. But Sara discovers she is not exactly alone. She realizes that Broken Wheel is in desperate need of some adventure, a dose of self-help and perhaps, a little romance too. In short, this is a town in need of a bookshop.”
