My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry
by Fredrik Backman
I have been meaning to read this for some time, because I love Backman! He has written 2 of my favorite books (A Man Called Ove and Anxious People). However, I put if off because I was afraid my expectations were going to be too high and I would be let down. Silly me. This book was so sweet; with deep emotions and unexpected relationships.
The Premise: Elsa is a ‘different’ kid and she has no friends except for her crazy grandmother. They have a close and unique relationship and the grandmother teaches Elsa about the world through her “made up” fairytale-like stories.
As you might guess from the title, the grandmother dies and leave Elsa with the task of delivering apology letters to people she has wronged.
As Elsa delivers the letters, she learns so much about her grandmother’s past, her neighbors and the relationships that bind us.
This was a feel-good book, with substance. If you have read it, I would love to know what you thought of it.
