Highlight: Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis


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.

AUTHOR INSIGHT: Forever Friday is loosely based on the author’s real great aunt and great uncle who shared a weekly correspondence through postcards and love poems throughout their 60-year marriage. Lewis discovered their postcards in the trash at the family estate sale and realized he had a real treasure. But it wasn’t until a friend going through a divorce said he didn’t believe in love anymore that Lewis knew he had to tell this story.

Lewis, Timothy.jpgLewis is not only a writer but talented performer and cowboy poet.  He composed the song used in the Forever Friday book trailer.  Lewis wrote it for his wife Dinah more than 30 years ago upon their engagement. “Like the book, that song poured from my soul. I didn't know I'd write the novel when I wrote the song, but the two were meant to be paired together,” Tim explains.
