'Full of grace and humanity' Sunday Times

'A beautiful and affecting novel of late love, by an extraordinary new writer' NINA STIBBE


WHAT READERS ARE SAYING-

'I loved this book. It was so different from anything else I have read'

'I just loved this book and read it in one sitting. There were times when I felt like underlining the sentences that resonated with me'

'I read this book one letter at a time, just to let the contents sink in. Tears came to my eyes'

************************************************

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, neither 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 novel of self-discovery and second chances, MEET ME AT THE MUSEUM is a heartbreaking celebration of love, life and the surprises it throws at us. In a story that is at once urgent and tender, Anne Youngson polishes the everyday until it gleams.
