In 2006, thirty-eight year old Adam Colby feels alone and depressed as his “forever” ended in divorce. A dreamer, he desperately wants to believe in eternal love, but fears he will never learn the secret.

Currently Adam works on the estate sale of Gabe and Huck Alexander when he notices a bundle of postcards. Intrigued with the cards as he is used to finding old photos instead at estates, Adam begins reading them. Quickly, Adam figures out the cards began in 1926 Texas and occurred every Friday for the next six decades afterward. Their objective was to insure the Alexander couple kept their relationship solidly based on the significance of Long Division especially when the loving pair dealt with life’s global and internal spitballs.

The lasting love between Gabe and Huck comes across with vigor as the postcards remind each to bring their heart and soul to their marriage even when mentally tired by wearisome other concerns and tsuris. On the other hand, Adam seems more a naive spoiled brat failing to bring depth to what he takes from the postcards even when he searches for the daughter of the Alexander housekeeper. Overall fascinating, Forever Friday is an inspiring read as Timothy Lewis reminds the audience that attention to your beloved’s needs matters in relationships.
