My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry: A Novel

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry: A Novel - Fredrik Backman This fascinating title reeled me in. It is a story of magical realism, and I enjoyed how the walls between reality and fantasy were malleable. Bereaved after her grandmother's passing, a little girl undertakes a task to deliver letters of apology written by her grandmother, to various people.

At the heart of this book is that everyone is different, has secrets or has something they want to avoid, or has something they regret, or wish had a different outcome -- in essence, everyone struggles and grieves in their own way. And sometimes, in the world of make-belief is where it is easiest to lay down those burdens, and then step back into the real world and begin anew. This is that story.
