Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrick Backman. Review

Britt-Marie a loyal wife up until the time she found out her husband was up to no good. Keeping house for many years and looking after his children were part of daily life so when the kids grew up and her husband was a swine Britt-Marie finds herself at a bit of a crossroads in her life with a bottle of disinfectant close to hand . Britt -Marie is 63, has very exact ideas about how things should be and she does not like to stray far from those ideas.  Headstrong and determined,  she is in desperate need to change her life before she fears she will fade from this world without anyone noticing. Life, death and friendship are the main topics in the story and there was many moments I spent smiling and sobbing throughout the book. The author makes you think about the important things in life like family, friends, life , and death in such a way that you keep thinking about the story long after you have finished. I recommend this book to everyone it's another remarkable story from this brilliant author.
