"This beautiful novel tells the love story of young Arthur Moses and Nola, and how a young man grew up to become the wise old man known as Arthur trulove. Set in the 1950s in the warm community of Mason, Missouri, Arthur is a shy, unathletic teenage boy, in love with the most beautiful girl in his class. He is thrilled when they become friends, but he wants more than friendship. Alas, he learns that Nola has a crush on the wrong Moses--Arthur's older brother, Frank. Meanwhile, Frank is busy pursuing his own passion, and avoiding their father, a war veteran with a drinking problem and a penchant for starting fights. When a sudden tragedy rocks Arthur's world, Arthur is force to grow up, and to learn how to create a life that involves the kinds of relationships that are the most important to him"-- Provided by publisher.
