"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"--… (mere)

Sweet story for the most part. I liked the interaction between the characters have despite their age differences. Unfortunately the ending was predictable, and the ending didn't really make sense with the timing of how everything happened. ( )

This book doesn't have chapters. That often made it difficult for me to pick a good stopping point and go to bed. Or maybe that's just because I liked the story so much! There are no surprises here. It's as predictable and sweet as the title suggests. But predictable and sweet sits well with me at the moment, and Maddy, Arthur, and Lucille are pretty great characters. ( )

Some nice observations about growing old and family. ( )
  SusanWallace | Jul 10, 2021 |
Simply wonderful. Audiobook is read by the author, who does a fantastic job. ( )
  Tosta | Jul 5, 2021 |
Touching story. Deserves a 4.75 ranking ( )

The life-affirming messages are far from subtle, and the fine line between sensitivity and sentimentality is often breached.

Aims for profound but settles for pleasant.

We all know that something is eternal. And it ain't houses and it ain't names, and it ain't earth, and it ain't even the stars---everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings.

Act well your part, there all the honour lies.

It is in people, to be entertained by cruelty.

What is it that makes a family? Certainly no document does, no legal pronouncement or accident of birth. No, real families come from choices we make about who we want to be bound to, and the ties to such families live in our hearts.
A man doesn't always make room in his life for appreciating certain things that seem to be under women's auspices, but there's a satisfaction in some of them.
A promise is a promise, even if it's only one you made to yourself.
