FOREVER FRIDAY BY TIMOTHY LEWIS

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 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?

Here's what I think about this book.......Ever want to sit down and just read an old fashion, nice heartwarming love story? Well that is just what Timothy Lewis gives readers in his book, FOREVER FRIDAY. This story started with Mr. Lewis finding postcards, in the trash mind you, that his great-uncle had sent his great-aunt every Friday for sixty years, Can you imagine? Out of that love of his family members, and several years later, this story breaks through the mind of this gifted and talented storywriter, The story is very well written and the characters are so realistic. This is one of those books you can't put down because you just can't wait to find out how it will end. I will say there are some adult issues, and this there are issues the characters faced because theirs was not a perfect marriage, but I felt like it is all handled well. This is one you don't want to miss.
