Publisher Description

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

Katarina Bivald's The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is a sweet, smart, and uplifting story about how books find us, change us, and connect us.

Once you let a book into your life the most unexpected things can happen: Like the bestselling historical novel and Netflix film The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is a heartwarming reminder of why we love books.

Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara: Sara traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her book-loving pen pal Amy, but when she arrives she finds Amy's funeral guests just leaving. The residents of Broken Wheel are happy to look after their bewildered visitor—there's not much else to do in a dying small town that's almost beyond repair. You certainly wouldn't open a bookstore. And definitely not with Sara the tourist in charge.

You'd need a vacant storefront (Main Street is full of them), books (Amy's house is full of them), and...customers. The bookstore might be a little quirky. Then again, so is Sara. But Broken Wheel's own story might be funnier, more eccentric and surprising than she thought.

If you liked big-hearted books like The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry or Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, you will love The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend.

Enjoyed it!

This was an relaxing book for a rainy day. I nearly read it straight through. Good characters in a quiet story that just lets things play out and still changes everyone.

Dreamy

At first I thought this book might be too slow- but as the characters gathered and the personalities were defined- I fell in love with them all. A book for the “Happy Ending” section!

I just could’ve saved my money…

There have been very few times in my life I have read a third of a book and just quit. This was one of those times. My reasons were not that complicated. The characters fell flat. The plot seemed to drag on so slowly that there was no way to anticipate what was happening next. I’ve never read any of this writer’s work before and I cannot understand the rave reviews, if this dud was any example.
