What a wonderful surprise this gem of a book was for me I do not recall how I learned of this book but I recall seeing my library got the audio and I immediately put myself on the list Finally it arrived and I jumped right in I pushed through this wanting to know what would happen not wanting it to endThe story is told in alternating letters from Tina Hopgood who lives in England and Professor Anders Larsen who lives in Denmark Tina writes to the Silkeborg museum sending a letter to Professor PV Glob who wrote a dedication in his book to a bunch of schoolgirls Tina being one of them long ago Since he has passed it is Professor Anders the museum curator who gets the letter from Tina and responds So begins this beautiful art of letter writingreally actually writing letters back and forth OK so eventually they switch to email only to increase the freuency of their correspondence Both are somewhat lost almost drifting through life but this unlikely friendship blooms and each becomes a stronger person I don't want to say and give anything away in this oneIt reminded me a bit of 84 Charing Cross Road where there is also a letter writing correspondence between two unlikely people But this one is so much better the character were real or at least I wanted them to be real The audio was great both narrators did a superb job and kept me so enthralled I actually looked forward to exercising as I listened while riding my bike Now I'm sure tomorrow I'll not be looking forward to that bike It's a uick read but one that can brighten your day Just thinking of these two who you almost think fate played a part in their story Looking forward to from this author and stories like this one

Meet Me at the MuseumHis wife along with his hopes and dreams for the future He does not know that a uery from a Mrs Tina Hopgood about a world famous antiuity in his museum is about to alter the course of his lifeOceans apart an unexpected correspondence flourishes as they discover shared passions for history and nature for useless objects. Some of the blurbs about this novel made me think that it might be too cloying and heavy handed for me I didn't need to worry This epistolary novel is tart and true in its depiction of a growing friendship And wonderful
