Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis
Forever Friday was a unique fiction love story. I enjoyed reading it as it was different than most books I will pick up. It switched back and forth between two stories. One story was about a couple that met in the 1920s and started a strong romance that lasted until the day of their death. The other story was set in today- about the man that was learning about the couple's romance before they died.
Gabe Alexander writes his wife a postcard with a poem every Friday throughout their whole marriage. Adam Colby finds these postcards after the Alexanders deaths. Adam is doing his job- sorting through the Alexander belongings after the estate sale. Adam doesn't know what to think about the postcards and their messages- as he himself has just gone through a recent divorce. He has a hard time believing in a marriage lasting, let alone having passion and love after many years.
The book takes you through the Alexanders stories and the postcards they shared. It also takes you through Adam Colby's story and the discoveries he makes. All and all, it was a pretty good book!
