Description
"Britt-Marie can't stand a mess, but that's exactly what her life has become. Leaving behind an unfaithful husband and a lifetime of taking care of everyone else before herself, she moves to the backwater town of Borg for a job looking after a crumbling recreation center, the favorite hangout of the town's supremely untalented children's soccer team. With her strict views about all things from the proper arrangement of a cutlery drawer to the appropriate time to wake up, Britt-Marie knows exactly how those around her should live their lives--and she isn't shy about sharing her opinions. But hidden inside this socially awkward, fussy busybody is a woman who has more imagination, bigger dreams, and a warmer heart than anyone around her realizes. As the fastidious Britt-Marie is drawn into the daily doings, hopes, and dreams of her unpredictable fellow citizens, she is faced with new challenges that require more than her formidable powers of organization and unrivaled knowledge of cleaning products can handle. She must learn to let down her guard and connect in this small town of misfits, can Britt-Marie find a place where she truly belongs?"--Publisher's description.
