An emotionally powerful novel about three people who each
lose the one they love most, only to find second chances
where they least expect them
For the past six months, Arthur Mosesís 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 Arthuróa gesture that begins a
surprising friendship between two lonely souls. Moved by
Arthurís kindness and devotion, Maddy gives him the nickname
ďTruluv.Ē As Arthurís 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.
