Subtitle from front cover.
Originally published as Lasarna i Broken Wheel rekommenderar in 2013 in Sweden by Bokforlaget Forum. This edition issued based on the hardcover edition published in 2015 in the United Kingdom by Chatto Windus, an imprint of Vintage Publishing, part of the Penguin Random House group of companies--Title page verso.
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 385-388).
Summary, etc.: Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds that Amy's funeral has just ended. Luckily, the townspeople are happy to look after their bewildered tourist--even if they don't understand her peculiar need for books. Marooned in a farm town that's almost beyond repair, Sara starts a bookstore in honor of her friend's memory. All she wants is to share the books she loves with the citizens of Broken Wheel and to convince them that reading is one of the great joys of life. But she makes some unconventional choices that could force a lot of secrets into the open and change things for everyone in town. Reminiscent of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, this is a warm, witty book about friendship, stories, and love -- Provided by publisher.
