Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
Because this is one of those stories where they exist only to serve the characters and their arc, I can forgive the contrived plot and events. I really loved Britt-Marie’s character, because I recognized much of myself and others whom I love and am sometimes so frustrated with in her. And I appreciated the loose, untidy, hopeful ending.
Audiobook version, via Audible. I loved Joan Walker’s performance, especially the way she brought Britt-Marie’s character to life.
