The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald

Warning: once you let books into your life, the most unexpected things can happen…

Sara is 28 and has never been outside Sweden – except in the (many) books she reads.  When her elderly penfriend Amy invites her to come and visit her in Broken Wheel, Iowa, Sara decides it’s time.  But when she arrives, there’s a twist waiting for her – Amy has died.  Finding herself utterly alone in a dead woman’s house in the middle of nowhere was not the holiday Sara had in mind.

But Sara discovers she is not exactly alone.  For here in this town so broken it’s almost beyond repair are all the people she’s come to know through Amy’s letters: poor George, fierce Grace, buttoned-up Caroline and Amy’s guarded nephew Tom.

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.

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend, Katarina Bivald’s debut novel, is an
international bestseller and a Richard and Judy Book Club choice for autumn 2016.

Peer & Press Reviews

This adorable book is a peach.  It’s built on the same lines as Cold Comfort Farm or Chocolat…  Wise, thoughtful, funny, warm, moving; all that stuff and more

Wendy Holden, The Daily Mail

Katarina Bivald has written an absolutely delightful, charming book that celebrates the healing power of friendship and love often found in small towns.  The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish, and I could not recommend it more highly.

Fannie Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

An international bestseller, this quirky, offbeat novel about books, with its wry humour and wonderful characters, is a delicious read.
