Forever Friday - Book Review
On the amazon page for this book it has these three lines:
Every Friday, a postcard.
Every Friday, a love poem.
Every Friday for sixty years.
That about sums up this book. A guy sends his wife a postcard with a love poem every Friday. Another guy goes through the personal effects of a lady as he prepares her house for an estate sale. He finds these postcards and gets wrapped up in their love story.
I remember thinking this was a little over the top for the schmaltzy love story genre and I almost had trouble finishing. This is a story withing a story. The letter were found and read and they effect the live of the man who finds them. I wish this portion of the story had been more developed. It was a little flat and wasn't explored as much as I expected or wanted.
This was a great book for those that want a love story. It reminded me a lot of a Nicolas Sparks like novel. It just needed to move along a little more quickly and I really wanted more from the modern parts of storyline.
