The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper
Author: Phaedra Patrick
Summary: Patrick's debut novel evokes whimsy and poignancy.  Since Miriam, his wife of 40 years, died a year ago, 69-year-old Arthur Pepper stopped living; he merely exists, until he finds a gold charm bracelet he'd never seen before tucked inside one of her shoes.  The first of the bracelet's eight charms is a bejeweled elephant inscribed with a phone number.  He calls it and is shocked to learn that Miriam once lived in India.  While unraveling Miriam's past, Arthur realizes that his outward journey is also a journey within, and in a comically heartwarming fashion he attempts to embrace the unknown while slowly discovering his positive impact on others.

Be sure to checkout this title from your Abilene Public Library and come out ready to discuss this title with other avid readers in the community.  Again, the Cover-to-Cover Book Club will meet on Thursday, April 20 at 7:00PM to discuss this title, so be sure to get in on the reading fun.
