"Sixty-nine-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7:30 a.m., just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater-vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden. But 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"--Jacket.… (mer)

Such a charming story! Simply told, yet emotionally engaging. The characters feel like friends now. It's a love story of the best kind, not about romance but about the love we show in the way we live our lives - even if we do it in mysterious ways. ( )

Enjoyable book. Older man who lost his wife but found a bracelet which led to an adventure. Good read. Nice people. ( )

Originally, I thought the title referred to Arthur Pepper's personality, but it refers to "charms" in the noun sense -- little objects. On the one-year anniversary of his wife Miriam's death, Arthur decides to finally clear out her things. He has had a rough, isolated, sad year and thinks this task may help him move forward. It does, but not in a way he could ever have anticipated. Early in the process, he finds a charm bracelet that he didn't even know she had, tucked into a box inside a boot. Secrets! In the half-dozen charms or so, he discovers things about his wife he never knew -- mostly prior to meeting her. Tracking down the sources of these objects take the reserved, set-in-his-ways pensioner out of his comfort zone: international phone calls and travel (India, France), brushes with famous people, and reliance on those more close to home: his bustling, do-gooder neighbor Bernadette (widow) and her morose young adult son, perpetually lawn-mowing neighbor Terry, and his own son Dan (in Australia) and local daughter, Lucy. As an audio book, the accents were charming and it was a delight to hear Arthur come alive. Though it was Miriam who died, Arthur was no longer living either. She herself comes through as a real character too. Reminiscent of Ove, and Harold Fry, but still unique in its approach, this is a happy, feel-good book. ( )

It took me a bit to get into it, but it's sweet and clever. The main character is so lovable. The idea that we can learn more about ourselves and grow at age 69 is hopeful and fresh. There's so much kindness in this story. I needed that! ( )

A very basic story of aging, grief, and recovery told in novel form. The story was so-so as was the writing; very average. 335 pages ( )
