Summary
From New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Berg comes a wise and emotionally powerful novel about three people who’ve lost the ones they love most, only to find second chances where they least expect them.

For the past six months, Arthur Moses’s days have looked the same: He tends to his rose garden and to Gordon, his cat, then rides the bus to the cemetery to visit his beloved late wife for lunch. The last thing Arthur would imagine is for one unlikely encounter to utterly transform his life.

Eighteen-year-old Maddy Harris is an introspective girl who visits the cemetery to escape the other kids at school. One afternoon she joins Arthur—a gesture that begins a surprising friendship between two lonely souls. Moved by Arthur’s kindness and devotion, Maddy gives him the nickname “Truluv.” As Arthur’s neighbor Lucille moves into their orbit, the unlikely trio band together and, through heartache and hardships, help one another rediscover their own potential to start anew.

Wonderfully written and full of profound observations about life, The Story of Arthur Truluv is a beautiful and moving novel of compassion in the face of loss, of the small acts that turn friends into family, and of the possibilities to achieve happiness at any age.

This was one of the most delightful books I've read. I enjoyed it so much that I wish it had been longer. I enjoyed the sweet voice of the narrator as well.

What a lovely book to listen to over time. The Main characters really grew on you as the story progressed. The main Character overcame some tough challenges and finally found her “family”. Which was a great relief to the reader. My only wish was she struggled with very horrible bullying which never got resolved and the Author kind of tossed in school support rather randomly and the role of her Dad or not was rather confusing as the book progressed.

Love this book, love the author, don’t love the author as the narrator. I don’t like when she is Lucille. She’s shrill and it’s not enjoyable

Heartwarming. Written almost like a fable, with kindness and generosity of heart. It brings together generations, unlikely families and incongruent personalities with amazing tenderness. It’s pure and simple storytelling that gives us faith in the human heart.

I loved this book! Such a sweet story. I wish something could have taken place with the bullies at school, but what a good story otherwise.
