Down on love, Adam Colby is an estate sale businessman who finds the postcards that are exchanged between husband and wife Gabe and Huck Alexander every Friday for the 60 year duration of their marriage. Fresh out of a divorce, he’s not sure if
love even exists anymore or if it does, what the secret would be to a happy marriage. Hoping to find some sort of key to
marital bliss he reads through the postcards and is able to fill in the bits and pieces with the help of a girl who had
worked for them during the golden years of their lives.
Huck is a woman with her own will, engaged to another man when she stumbles across Gabe working at the fish market. From that instant Gabe is head over heels in love with Huck and determined that she is his dream girl, Huck can’t help but think about him too and so she purposely sets out to meet him one day. They do run into each other and after spending the day together, he drops her off at her house to discover her waiting, angry fiance. After a fist fight where her fiance
threatens bodily harm to both her and Gabe, she realizes that she was never in love with her fiance in the first place.
From that day on, Gabe and Huck are inseparable and even have an abbreviated wedding date set up and from that Friday on, a postcard is written to Huck from Gabe for the rest of their lives.
You will laugh and cry with “Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis. The characters have so much personality that you just become
so wrapped up in their lives and their story and it feels so much like they could be more than a fictional person in a
story. This is not just your cheesy run of the mill love story. This is a story about two characters’ “hearts commanding
devotion” and hope. Hope in something more than what is in yourself to get through lifes trials and errors and hope that
true love really does exist and is achievable.
