Lewis, Timothy. Forever Friday. Colorado Springs, CO: WaterBrook Press. 2013.
Recently divorced, Adam Colby is hired to go through the belongings of Gabe and Pearl (aka Huck) Alexander. Surprised, he finds a collection of personal postcards in an old photo album dating back six decades which speak of true devotion. Through the Friday poems, much is learned about Gabe and Huck…their relationship, their soul-mate love, their unending devotion to each other as well as the many circumstances which tested all of these. “Two hearts commanding devotion”…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Spanning decades between the postcards and the present day, Forever Friday linked two different time periods together by the timeless lesson of true love and devotion. Through postcards at the beginning of each chapter, flashbacks to Gabe and Huck’s relationship, and present day happenings, the author really was able to convey a strong message in his novel. Though not exactly what I was expecting, I found myself caught up in the story and the moments portrayed. I enjoyed the author’s writing style which kept the book moving forward to a final conclusion joining past and present.
