The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick

recommended by Emily B.

This is the story of an Englishman who is having trouble navigating life since the death of his wife the previous year. Then he discovers a charm bracelet of hers that he never realized existed. The pursuit of the meaning of these mysterious charms leads to him getting to know his wife in whole new light. By exploring her life before they met, he ultimately discovers a new life ahead of him as well. Though the plot is a little on the improbable side, it is a quick, encouraging read with a sense of humor and textured characters that makes pleasant use of a cozy afternoon.
