Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis Review
Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis
Rating: 2.5 Stars!
Ideal for readers of Nicholas Sparks, Forever Friday is the heartwarming and captivating tale of an unlikely couple, a weekly gift of devotion, and a heartbroken man longing to discover the secret to lasting marriage.
After a devastating divorce leaves Adam Colby heartbroken, he is not sure how he can put the pieces of his life back together. He wonders if even God can make sense of the mess that remains-until a package of mysterious postcards that direct Adam to the story of Gabe and Huck Alexander. Drawn by her desire to find a true soulmate, Pearl "Huck" Huckabee breaks a turbulent engagement with her fiancé to marry Gabe Alexander, a man she's known just a few short weeks. Wanting to celebrate and protect their love, Gabe mails her a meaningful postcard every week-beginning in 1926-for the next sixty years. Designed to arrive on Fridays, each postcard not only contains an original poem, but holds precious truths, the sum of which answer the universal question: what makes a marriage last? As Adam begins to uncover the Alexanders' secret, he records Gabe and Huck's extraordinary romance. It's a process that will change his life forever.
This wasn't my favorite novel. It was okay, but not great. There are plenty other romance novels out there in the Christian market that are better. Another thing I did NOT like was there was one curse word. I did not appreciate that whatsoever. Reading a Christian novel, I shouldn't be worried that I'll come across foul language. I was pretty disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this to others.
