Blake is restless and hungry for a change of venue. He loves the peace and tranquility of the beautiful Wyoming landscape.

The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

Sometimes I feel honored to be able to read and review a particular book. That’s exactly how I feel about Elizabeth Berg’s new novel. Ms. Berg delights the reader again with her easygoing, smooth dialogue and her complex, stellar, characters. Arthur has lunch with his wife ever day. He never misses, always bringing his sandwich and folding chair. Carrying his load on the bus has become cumbersome, but his daily lunch and chat is well worth it. He sets his chair in front of the granite stone marker at her grave and talks to Nola about his past day. He notices a young girl with a backpack watching him. This girl is Maddy, a young lady who has her own tough life to deal with. The story revolves around these two characters as they deal with heartache, the loss of very special people and how an unusual friendship can move mountains and heal the brokenhearted. I loved the heartfelt prose and beautiful relationships in this book! I highly recommend this book and any others of best-selling author, Elizabeth Berg.
