“This charming novel is told entirely in correspondence between Tina, a woman of a certain age in England who is questioning her place in the world after her best friend’s death, and Kristian, a Danish museum curator who is adrift after the death of his wife. As their correspondence evolves and their friendship develops, they realize that the world may have more to offer than they initially thought. Meet Me at the Museum is sweet without being cloying, gentle without insulting the reader’s intelligence, and a completely enjoyable read.”

Winter 2019 Reading Group Indie Next List

“Perfect for those who loved The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry or epistolary novels such as 84, Charing Cross Road. What starts as a somewhat academic correspondence between a curator of a museum in Denmark and a woman searching for meaning after a great loss becomes a relationship neither knew how much they needed. This one will be a great book club selection.”

Description

“Warm-hearted, clear-minded, and unexpectedly spellbinding, Meet Me at the Museum is a novel to savor.” — Annie Barrows, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

In Denmark, Professor Anders Larsen, an urbane man of facts, has lost his wife and his hopes for the future. On an isolated English farm, Tina Hopgood is trapped in a life she doesn’t remember choosing. Both believe their love stories are over.

Brought together by a shared fascination with the Tollund Man, subject of Seamus Heaney’s famous poem, they begin writing letters to one another. And from their vastly different worlds, they find they have more in common than they could have imagined. As they open up to one another about their lives, an unexpected friendship blooms. But then Tina’s letters stop coming, and Anders is thrown into despair. How far are they willing to go to write a new story for themselves?

More praise for Meet Me at the Museum:

"the charmer of the summer...A touching, hopeful story about about figuring out what matters and mustering the courage to make the necessary changes." — NPR
