BOOK REVIEW MEET ME AT THE MUSEUM BY ANNE YOUNGSON

Sometimes it takes a stranger to really know who you are

When Tina Hopgood writes a letter of regret to a man she has never met, she doesn’t expect a reply.

When Anders Larsen, a lonely museum curator, answers it, nor does he.

They’re both searching for something, they just don’t know it yet.

Anders has lost his wife, along with his hopes and dreams for the future. Tina is trapped in a marriage she doesn’t remember choosing.

Slowly their correspondence blossoms as they bare their souls to each other with stories of joy, anguish and discovery. But then Tina’s letters suddenly cease, and Anders is thrown into despair.

Can their unexpected friendship survive?

A deep and luminous story of late love and second chances – an enduring novel of ideas about life, love and the surprises it throws at us.

Firstly a big thank you to Alison for my copy to review.

The title and cover had me intrigued straight away.

This kept me entertained on many trains today. I absolutely loved this. Its so unique and heartfelt.

It will remind you the beauty of letter writing and the power of words

Beautifully written , descriptive of 2 very different locations

Heartwarming and uplifting.

I highly recomend especially to rid the January blues.
