3/6            The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

"This is a moving novel about three people who have lost the person they love most and must find their way back to happiness. Arthur, a widower, meets Maddy, an angry and friendless teenage girl, while visiting his late wife at the cemetery, where he goes every day for lunch. Against all odds, the two strike up a friendship that pulls them out of a serious rut. They band together with Arthur's nosy neighbor Lucille to create lives that are truly worth living. Proving that life's most precious moments are sweeter when shared, they go from strangers to friends, creating an untraditional, but loving family. Betrayal, loneliness, romance and family are at the heart of this book. This is a story about life being affirmed at all ages, old and young, and about finding happiness when hope seems lost."

NOTE: The author has written an equally moving sequel entitled NIGHT OF MIRACLES
