My goal as an author is to connect my readers with characters they'd love to invite to lunch. So, in addition to introducing you to the characters in my own novels, I want to talk to you about those I find in the books I'm reading.
Today that character is Britt-Marie from Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman. When you first meet Britt-Marie, you may not find her very likeable. She lacks social graces, is completely inflexible, and believes everyone should live their life just like she does - and has no problems telling that to those around her. However, Fredrik Backman weaves a tale in which the reader experiences Britt-Marie's metamorphosis from a fussy, strict rule keeper to a kind, courageous, and feisty woman.
Britt-Marie is like any woman who has ever had to make changes later in life and take a step into the unknown. She gives us hope that we can become who we are meant to become - even if we spent years being someone else. In the end, we must all determine what really matters and then live in a way that honors it.
Britt-Marie is a character that will not disappear after you've read the final page. Without a doubt, she is someone you'd love to invite to lunch.
I highly recommend Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman
