Words of a Bibliophile

SPOILER ALERT!

The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

The Story of Arthur Truluv: A Novel - Elizabeth Berg

This is a sweet little story about human connections and finding a family in unlikely places, but certain aspects could have been more developed to make it stronger. I did feel for Maddy and her struggles during the beginning (I wish the serious issues she struggled with are addressed further, though—her problems are rather too easily resolved by around the book's halfway mark and everything is mostly smooth-sailing for her from then on), and I liked Arthur's kindness and his views about finding purpose and meaning in old age.
