The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

51tYdmfiMZLWhile The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper reminded me of A Man Called Ove (reviewed here) at first, soon thereafter, it took a decidedly different turn. Arthur Pepper is a lovable guy, compared to Ove, and the story is vastly different. Arthur continues life as normal and regimented after the death of his wife until, a year later, when he is cleaning out her things and discovers a charm bracelet which he has never seen before. Uncharacteristically, he begins a journey to track down the background of each charm. And, in doing so, he learns about who his wife really was. It is a charming (sorry!) story that was a treat to read. Not Ove quality, but quite good.
