Publisher's Summary

For as long as anyone can remember, Britt-Marie has been an acquired taste. It's not that she's judgmental or fussy or difficult - she just expects things to be done in a certain way. A cutlery drawer should be arranged in the right order, for example - forks, knives, then spoons. We're not animals, are we?
But behind the passive-aggressive, socially awkward, absurdly pedantic busybody is a woman who has more imagination, bigger dreams and a warmer heart than anyone around her realises. So when Britt-Marie finds herself unemployed, separated from her husband of 20 years, left to fend for herself in the miserable provincial backwater that is Borg - of which the kindest thing one can say is that it has a road going through it - and somehow tasked with running the local football team, she is a little unprepared.
But she will learn that life may have more to offer her than she's ever realised, and love might be found in the most unexpected of places.
The number-one European best seller by the author of A Man Called Ove, Britt-Marie Was Here is a funny, poignant and uplifting tale of love, community and second chances.

An Enjoyable Read

After falling in love with Backman's A Man Called Ove, I decided to read all of his books that I could get my hands on. This one was enjoyable. It was a bit slow going at first, and the character voice changes were a bit on the ear piercing side ;) but around halfway through, I found myself yearning to listen and yearning to find out what happens as the story unfolds. I won't spoil the ending, but even though I enjoyed it, I was a bit disappointed. Overall, I recommend anyone who enjoyed Ove also give this a listen as well.
