ABOUT "THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV"
A life-affirming novel about love, loss, and second chances.
Every day at lunchtime, Arthur visits and talks to his beloved late wife, in his imagination. Then a surprising encounter changes his life. Arthur meets Maddy, a troubled teenager who is avoiding school and wrestling with loneliness and feelings of abandonment. Moved by Arthur’s kindness and his unwillingness to take her teenage bait, Maddy gives him the nickname “Truluv”—and a surprising friendship develops between the two. When Arthur’s nosey neighbor, Lucille, moves into their orbit, the three begin to help one another through heartache and hardships to rediscover a sense of family, and to find again their potential to start anew.
