"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

"In this lovely audiobook an English farm wife, fascinated by the Tollund Man, an iron age Dane found uncannily preserved in a peat bog, begins a correspondence with a curator at the museum in Jutland that houses the remains. Helen Lloyd's Tina is warm, thoughtful, and seeking. The curator, Anders, who has been fairly recently widowed, is writing to her in his second language, so Lars Knudsen's Danish accent conveys the differences and distance between them, even as they come to trust and rely on each other through shared language as they acknowledge joys and face hard truths about their own lives. Meanwhile, they speculate about death, mourning, ritual, sacrifice, and how life happens to people, from Tollund Man to themselves, to deeply satisfying effect.
