The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is a delight. Sara, a booklover from Sweden, comes to the tiny – almost dead – town of Broken Wheel, Iowa to meet her pen pal, only to find circumstances have drastically altered her plans. The townspeople reluctantly support Sara as she sets about bringing books to those who don’t seem to want them, and she comes to know and love them, quirky as they are. As unlikely as it seems, the bookstore she opens becomes a catalyst for bringing the people together and bringing the town back to life. If you love books, book stores, and colorful characters, this book will become one of your favorites.
