Meet Me at the Museum by Anna Youngston
I hesitate to send this review because it is so negative. Meet Me at the Museum does not compare favorably to The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: Mary Ann Shaffer  which thoroughly enjoyed.

I found the book to be tiresome, contrived and wordy. The pace was uneven. It began with a letter written by an English Farmer's wife, Tina Hopgood, written to Silkeborg Museum's curator, Kristian Larson. Tina wanted to know about the Tollund Man and the Bog people she had learned about in school. This correspondence evolved into a sharing of thoughts and confidences about their lives, and discovering they are two lonely people who have found each other. I did not like any of the characters.
