My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman, 372 pages

Elsa is seven and friendless except for her 77 year old eccentric grandmother.  Elsa and her grandmother have a secret language that is based on a fairytale world that her grandmother has been telling Elsa about since she can remember.

Elsa's grandmother dies and sends Elsa on a quest to deliver letters to several people.  Through her quest, Elsa learns that some of the stories she has heard are based on real people. 

It took me quite a long time to get into this book but once I did, I really enjoyed it.  Fredrik Backman tells stories about love and broken people and healing.  I am looking forward to the next tale from him.
