"Sixty-nine-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7:30 a.m., just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater-vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden. But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam's death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam's possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he's never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife's secret life before they met--a journey that leads him to find hope, healing, and self-discovery in the most unexpected places"--Jacket.

Great Book! submitted by jgetty on May 13, 2019, 4:06pm I checked out this book because library staff had displayed it on a good books shelf. I loved the book, and the whole idea of Arthur's adventure. The story is very thoughtful, kind, interesting, with an optimistic outlook. Great Book! Also, I love when I find a great author and then find that they have written more books. Currently, reading her other book Benedict Stone, and enjoying it very much, too!
