When Arthur feels ready to start clearing out his wife’s belongings he comes across a gold charm bracelet and it leads him to discover the secret life of his wife. The charms all lead to a part of her life before she met him – and that he knows nothing about.
One of his neighbours had taken him under his wing when he lost his wife and as he starts to explore where the charms lead him- his friendship deepens and he starts to appreciate her more.
It’s a lovely story about a lifelong romance, friendships and how complete strangers can come into your life and shape the way you see things in the future.
You feel like giving Arthur a huge hug and taking him for a coffee in a lovely traditional cafe and long for his children to start appreciating him.
