LoveReading Says

One of our Books of the Year 2016.

The publisher’s blurb for this quirky novel certainly drew me to it especially since I am an enormous fan of his first, A Man Called Ove.  I’m afraid I didn’t read his second (shame on me!).  Here we have a woman who is definitely on ‘the spectrum’, who has at last left a cheating, domineering husband (when he had a heart attack in the arms of another woman) and must now earn a living.  She will not accept that the Job Centre has nothing for her and is eventually given a dead-end, short-term job as caretaker in a closing sports centre in a dying town.  She ends up coaching the local kids’ football team in a delightful, warm-hearted tale of great charm.  How she wins everyone round and makes a life for herself is poignantly realised. A lovely read.
