Meet Me At the Museum by Anne Youngson
I picked up this book solely based on the sweet title and the charming cover, and found it to be just as sweet and charming and tender between the covers as it was on the outside. An epistolary work, this is a collection of letters between two friends, a farm wife in the English countryside who is struggling with the death of one of her dear friends, and a museum curator widow in Denmark. As they correspond, first about an administrative issue, then about their lives, friendship grows between them as they shore each other up through life struggles on both ends. In time, their friendship begins to blossom into something more. What I particularly loved about this tender story was partly that Youngson doesn't ask you to root for an affair, and has her characters deal with the attraction in an up-front, gentle, and mature way- well done, Ms. Youngson! This is definitely a book that reminds you what the best of humanity looks like, and it's tender message of hope will leave your heart bigger than when you started. Two big thumbs up from me.
