We are starting the new year off with something light and fun! The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick is the story of a lovable widower who embarks on a life-changing adventure. Several copies are available at Readers Books and Vintage House will also have several library copies available to borrow.
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 and healing in the most unexpected places.
Author Phaedra Patrick will be joining us from the UK. You will have the opportunity to ask her questions and get her insight.
