The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper - P.Patrick
Audio performance by James Langton
3.5 stars

Arthur Pepper does have some personal charm, but the actual charms of the story belonged to his late wife. One year after her death, Arthur isn’t doing too well. He likes his routines. He's in emotionally neutral, solitary, avoidance mode. But, it’s been a year, so he steals himself to clean out his wife’s closet. He discovers an expensive charm bracelet that he has never seen at any time during their long marriage. Each charm leads him to a different episode in his wife’s life before their marriage. The discovery pulls him back into the world of the living. It’s a mildly funny, sweet story, but fairly predictable. James Langton is not my favorite voice artist. Arthur Pepper gets himself into some truly awkward situations, but Langton managed to put a damper on the humor.

It's on my prosperity list :). It might be on someone else's, too, but I haven't gone and read all of the lists yet.
