"Truluv is a moving novel about three people who have lost the person they love most, and must find their way back to happiness. Arthur, a widower, meets Maddy, an angry and friendless teenage girl, while visiting his late wife at the cemetary, where he goes every day for lunch. Against all odds, the two strike up a friendship that pulls them out of a serious rut. They band together with Arthur's nosy neighbor Lucille, to create lives that are truly worth living. Proving that life's most precious moments are sweeter when shared, they go from strangers, to friends, to an untraditional but loving family. Betrayal, loneliness, romance and family are at the heart of this honey of a book, a must-read for fans of Elizabeth Berg's early work. This is a story about life being affirmed at all ages, old and young, and about finding hapiness when hope seems lost. Readers will laugh, cry, and love Truluv"--

Such a lovely story. All I can say is that my heart was full when I read this book. A great choice for people who loved A Man Called Ove. Arthur is the opposite of Ove's curmudgeon - he is sweet, generous, loving and kind. But he has lost his wife and he builds a community of unlikely people who become his family. Elizabeth Berg's writing is effortless and full of memorable lessons. Readers of Our Souls at Night would also enjoy this one.

I enjoyed this book very much. It reminded me a lot of A Man Called Ove. At times it made me ache for family. That was hard.
