Book Review: Forever Friday

Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis

Every Friday, a postcard
           Every Friday, a love poem
                     Every Friday for sixty years

Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the Alexander belongings remaining after the estate sale. He is unprepared for what he finds in an old photo album, overlooked by the bargain hounds and treasure hunters---six decades of postcards and poems from Gabe Alexander to his wife, Pearl. The mystery of the Alexanders' love entices Adam, a man unhinged by divorce and puzzled by the depth of commitment that he finds in the unabashedly romantic cards.
Forever Friday invites you to travel back in time to the early twentieth century Texas Coastal Bend where a young couple---Gabe and Pearl Alexander---are swept up in a miraculous love. As the heartwarming, pulse-quickening story of their relationship develops through Gabe's poems, the Alexanders reveal a new way to consider what it means to be truly devoted to each other. Could the secrets of their love affair, laid to rest twenty years ago, hold the key to one man's future?

This was an enjoyable read following Gabe and Pearl's (AKA Huck) relationship from the day they meet up until their deaths, showing first how they fall in love and then following their life after they're married, showing everything they go through during their marriage. It was a very sweet love story and I especially enjoyed the first half of it, though it was all good. A worthwhile read and one that I think most women would enjoy.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.
