What Sisters and Oblates Are Reading

A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove
by Fredrik Backman
Washington Square

Margaret Wehrer, oblate

One book I read and loved this summer was A Man Called Ove. The story focuses on a grumpy old man whom the reader is prone to dislike at the outset. However, as the story unfolds, we find out why he is so grumpy, and we also see him make choices in favor of life, love and forgiveness, despite all he has suffered in the past. The story is set in Sweden, so you get a little taste of urban life there. It's a great story, with characters you grow to love.
