My Thoughts 

During my original reading of Arthur Truluv, I just fell in love with the wonderful characters Ms. Berg created. Therefore, I really appreciated the opportunity to read an early copy of this title. This one gave me many emotions and some tears, but I ultimately adored this.  

This is Arthur's origin story, if you will, and is heartwarming and lovely. 

Thank you to Random House and NetGalley for the DRC!


This beautiful new novel by the beloved author of Open House and Talk Before Sleep tells the story of two young people growing up in Mason, Missouri, and how Arthur Moses, a shy young man, becomes the wise and compassionate person readers loved in The Story of Arthur Truluv.

Nola McCollum is the most desirable girl in Arthur’s class, and he is thrilled when they become friends. But Arthur wants far more than friendship. Unfortunately, Nola has a crush on the wrong Moses—Arthur’s older brother, Frank, who is busy pursuing his own love interest and avoiding the boys’ father, a war veteran with a drinking problem and a penchant for starting fights. When a sudden tragedy rocks the family’s world, Arthur struggles to come to terms with his grief. In the end, it is nature that helps him to understand how to go on, beyond loss, and create a life of forgiveness and empathy. But what can he do about Nola, who seems confused about what she wants in life, and only half aware of the one who loves her most?

Full of unforgettable characters and written with Elizabeth Berg’s characteristic warmth, humor, and insight into people, 
Earth’s the Right Place for Love is about the power of kindness, character, and family, and how love can grow when you least expect it.
