The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg is touchingly sweet story. We follow the lives of Arthur, recently widowed, as he makes a daily visit to the cemetary visiting his wife. He meets a young girl Maddy and their friendship is the crust of this tear jerker. Neighbor Lucille also enters into this gorgeously written novel. Although we’ve heard this tale before, Berg is able to take us out of the predictable clichés that are the downfall of these type of novels.
