Forever Friday

Every Friday, a postcard.
Every Friday, a love poem.
Every Friday for sixty years.

Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the unsold Alexander belongings 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 that 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?

Praise for Forever Friday
Forever Friday is a compelling, poignant story about soul mates.  Timothy Lewis writes with Southern charm, emotional intensity, and inspired insight about the passage of time that might cause a marriage to falter.  A must read for those who believe in the endearing and eternal power of hope.”   
—DeWanna Pace, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of A Texas Christmas“In this day of disposable relationships, along comes a beautiful tale of lifelong love between two soulmates. Drawing from his own personal pain and disappointment, Timothy Lewis brings to life real characters in a page-turning romance that will keep you holding your breath in anticipation. Forever Friday makes you want to find (if you haven't already) your own lifelong soul mate to cherish forever. There is something to be said in defense of everlasting love, and Timothy Lewis says it stunningly.”
—Martha Bolton, playwright and author of eighty-eight books, including the novel Josiah for President
