The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

Reviewed by Jayne S (Library Staff)

Arthur visits his late wife at the cemetery everyday. Maddy is a bullied teenager who escapes to the solitude of the cemetery. They start an unlikely friendship that also includes Arthur’s next door neighbor Lucille.

This is gentle reading at its best. Arthur’s reflections on life were spot on. I could relate to all the characters. The book was loving, happy, sad and brought me to tears.

I immediately borrowed the next two books in the series and binge-read them. I recommend you borrow all three at the same time, you will want to know what happens next. The titles are: Night of Miracles and The Confession Club.
