A quirky, yet hopeful, book about a Swedish tourist who decides to vacation in a small town in Iowa. She chose this town because she has been a penpal to a lady who lives there. Only when she arrives the penpal has died.
I enjoyed the characters who populate Broken Wheel but I find it quite unlikely that a young woman with no friends or social like in Sweden can move into a floundering town and bring it back to life.
Even with that major hurdle to overcome, the book was fun to read.
