Loyalty. First impressions can be so misleading. The early pages of Frederik Backman’s novel titled, Britt-Marie Was Here, present protagonist Britt-Marie as a very annoying person. Her social interactions lack the finesse and ease that mark most of our daily encounters. The annoying aspects of her personality and her ways of relating with others mask the reality of a loving person whose presence changes all those around her for the better. Readers looking for a novel to lift one’s spirits should consider reading this joyful novel about an individual whose loyalty can be counted on, no matter what.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
