Title: The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper
Author: Phaedra Patrick
Genre: Fiction. Tough to classify, part slice-of-life, part humor, part adventure, and part mystery
What’s it about? A reclusive widower has finally decided to go through his wife’s belongings when he finds a charm bracelet he never knew she had. Curiosity gets the better of him and he slowly unravels the story behind each charm. This discovery not only reveals things he never knew about his wife, but also forces him out of his comfort zone and helps him realize a side of himself he never knew he had.

Closing comments: This is a charming (sorry for the pun) slice of life story that readers of a Man Called Ove and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry will enjoy.
