Britt-Marie was Here (by Fredrik Backman) … a socially awkward but delightful lady captures your heart

Once again Fredrik Backman has you pulled into the story and cheering on Britt-Marie…a lady with OCD. The author does a wonderful job of making the main character, Britt-Marie, unique, entertaining, aggravating, and human. While her OCD characteristics drive you nuts, when her life takes an unexpected turn, she struggles to find a place where she will fit.

Borg opens its doors to this socially awkward woman and realizes that she has a heart big enough to take on the community.

While there were lots of colorful words, if you can ignore those, the story is definitely worth listening to/reading. You will find yourself falling in love with this interesting lady and her football team.
