69-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He wakes up each day at precisely 7:30 am, just as he did when his wife Miriam was alive. He dresses in the same grey slacks and mustard tank top, waters his fern Frederica, and heads out to his garden. But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam’s death, something changes. Rifling through Miriam’s possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he’s never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable adventure 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 healing, self-discovery, and love in the most unexpected places.
