Forever Friday

By: Timothy Lewis

Adam Colby’s divorce leaves him bitter and questioning whether true love really exists.  As he was cleaning up after an estate sale he came across an album full of postcards.  Each postcard contained a poem written by Gabe Alexander to his wife Pearl (a.k.a. Huck).  Adam was intrigued by the depth of their love and set out on a quest to find out more about this couple.  Yvette is the only one who knows Gabe and Huck’s story.  At first she is reluctant to meet with Adam but she soon realizes he is just the right person to gain insight into this beautiful love story.

I really enjoyed reading this book and loved the front cover.  The story mainly focuses on the lives of Gabe and Huck with interjections of Adam’s life.  Although I enjoyed most of the story, I felt some of storyline was unnecessary and not developed enough.  Without getting into too much detail, there is a part in the book where Huck runs into her ex-fiancé.  I found this part of the story to be a little unrealistic and disturbing.  I also felt that the story about Adam and Yvette was not developed enough.  I know they were not meant to be the main focus of this book but I feel like their story could have been portrayed better.  Overall I think this was a good book with a great love story.  One interesting fact that the author shared is how this story is “loosely” based off of the lives of his great aunt and great uncle.  I look forward to reading more from this author.  

*I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.
