My Review Of Forever Friday By Timothy Lewis

Synopsis:


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

Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the unsold Alexander belongings 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?

My Take On This Book:

Oh what a beautiful and romantic love story. Gabe and Huck have a first chance meeting as she is buying  a  batch of fresh oysters from the store Gabe was working at. From that day on neither one could keep each other out of one another's minds. 

Gabe would hope with each passing day when she didn't come in to get oysters that he would run into her on the street or maybe just in pass. 

Adam Colby is an owner of a small estate sale business and he comes across post cards from six decades of Gabe writing a poem to his wife Pearl.  Adam himself being married once and his wife told him in a post-it-note that she wanted a divorce, so for Adam he could not begin understand the love this man Gabe has for his wife to send her a postcard everyday of their lives together.

Forever Friday is a very well written and wonderful love story that all of us only wish to have. If you love a great romance that is surreal, you will want to pick up a copy of Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis. 

I received a free copy of this book for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, for my honest unbiased opinion.

  3. When I doing some research in an archives, I came across a collection where a man wrote his wife a letter every morning before he left for work, so this book brings back that memory for me.
