The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

A Richard & Judy Book Club Pick

New York Times Bestseller

Sara has never left Sweden but at the age of 28 she decides it’s time. She cashes in her savings, packs a suitcase full of books and sets off for Broken Wheel, Iowa, a town where she knows nobody.

Sara quickly realises 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.

With a little help from the locals, Sara sets up Broken Wheel’s first bookstore. The shop might be a little quirky but then again, so is Sara. And as Broken Wheel’s story begins to take shape, there are some surprises in store for Sara too…

Sara, a young bookseller from Sweden, has for quite some time been exchanging reading experiences with Amy, an elderly woman from Broken Wheel, a small town in Iowa. When she loses her job and is trying to figure out what to do next, Amy invites her for a longer stay. But when the young European arrives, her pen friend has died and she is left to herself in Amy’s house. Soon she finds out that the inhabitants of this run down place are very lovely and treat her as one of them. Nevertheless, they all have their secrets and little burdens to bear. When she feels useless in Broken Wheel and especially in Amy’s house, the idea of a bookshop, the love that brought her there, comes up and soon there is a new attraction in town. I really likes the story as a modern kind of fairy tale which is sweet as sugar and in which you just have to love the characters with all their defects. As a binge reader myself and especially fond of classics, reading Amy’s letters in which she discusses and recommends novels, where she compares plots to real life is real fun and you can easily find yourself in the novel. The plot, obviously, is not very realistic, but this is not necessary for a feel-good-novel just to enjoy. When the centre of the plot turns around books and the love for them, I was really into the story. Slowly the focus shifts and the love stories, one of the protagonist and another in a secondary plot, I lost a bit of interest because the novel lost of substance here and became more an average love story. Nevertheless, a story you can easily indulge in and enjoy a couple of fantastic reading hours.
