Add to Calendar 02/06/2020 10:30 AM 02/06/2020 11:30 AM America/New_York All Aboard! Book Discussion: The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

Join other readers to share your thoughts on a variety of books. This month's selection is The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick.  

Sixty-nine-year-old widower Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He is predictable and cautious as he carries out daily routines. However, 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, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places.
