Book Review: Forever Friday

Book about romance writing postcards
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 and 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 cads. 

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-quickining 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.

To be honest when I first got this book, I was a little cautious. Since when can a man write a good romance story. I mean, if you've read about my boyfriend, being a typical boy, you'd understand why I would be especially skeptical. Reading through Forever Friday, I was of course proven wrong, and discovered an amazing romance without all the gushy behavior that can be a little annoying. This is a great love story. If you liked When the Clouds Roll By or  For Love or Loyalty you'll love this book.
