My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman

Product Details  Something compelled me to read this book.  I loved the title, I loved the cover and most of all,  I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!  

This is such a sweet, powerful and compeling story.   It is the story of Elsa, a 7 year old girl and her grandmother.   It's a story about relationships, how lives intertwine and most of all, it's about the power of the stories themselves to unite and heal us.

I loved every character in this book and find something relatable in all of them, even Sam.  After all, some monsters don't start out that way.   I enjoyed how each character contributed in their own way and also, how they are all represented in Granny's fairytales.

I am a firm believer that, as C.S. Lewis once said, you are never too old for fairy tales.   This book demonstrated that so beautifully.  I just added everything that this man has written to my TBR pile.  I can't wait to read A Man Called Ove and Britt-Marie Was Here.  Five out of five stars and if it was possible to give more, I would.
