A review of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald. Post may contain affiliate links.
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommendopens up with Sara standing on Hope, Iowa’s main street. She is not from Hope, that is obvious, and she is reading a book.
We soon learn that Sara is from Sweden. She is on her way to Broken Wheel, Iowa to meet up with a woman named Amy. A woman she has never met, but who she has been corresponding with over a love of books. She needed a break from her mundane life in Sweden and a visit to a small town in America, to meet with a lovely older woman to do nothing but talk about books, sounds ideal.
Unfortunately, Amy has died while Sara was on her way to America. With no other choice she decides to stay in Broken Wheel for her planned visit. The people of Broken Wheel embrace her and she embraces them.
This is such a lovely book. The love of books is woven throughout this whole book. The shared love of books between Amy and Sara. The power of books to change lives. I don’t want to give anything away because it is so charming the way the story unfolds. Sara was exactly what Broken Wheel needed and Broken Wheel was exactly what Sara needed.
A charming, feel good book that I would recommend to anyone, especially other book lovers.
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
