Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis

From the back cover...

Every Friday, A Postcard
Every Friday, A Love Poem
Every Friday For Sixty Years

Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the Alexander belongings remaining after the estate sale.  He is unprepared for what he finds in an old photo album, overlooked by the bargain hounds and treasure hunters-six decades of postcards and poems from Gabe Alexander to his wife, Pearl. The mystery of the Alexanders' love entices Adam, a man unhinged by divorce and puzzled by the depth of commitment the he finds in the unabashedly romantic cards.

Forever Friday invites you to travel back in time to the early twentieth century Texas Coastal Bend where a young couple-Gabe and Pearl Alexander-are swept up in a miraculous love.  As the heartwarming, pulse-quickening story of their relationship develops through Gabe's Poems, the Alexanders reveal a new way to consider what it means to be truly devoted to each other.  Could the secrets of their love affair, laid to rest twenty years ago, hold the key to one man's future.

This was a fantastic book to read. This book gives you a peek into the lives of four different people. It alternates between the different characters point of view in the story.  You also get a peek at some of the letters that were written by Gabe.  Oh to have love letters sent to you every week!!

Gabe is a man who loves his wife dearly.  In order to show her just how much, he sends her a love letter/poem every Friday that they are married. After his death Pearl, a.k.a. Huck, still sees him in her dreams and is always waiting for one more letter from him to come on Friday. Because of Gabe's letters, Adam is able to see what true love can be like.
