the norm, but at first I couldn t figure out why After some thought, I decided it was because of the instant, intense love at first sight theme between Gabe and Huck, the two main characters I d just finished reading a string of novels in which the romantic duo were antagonistic toward each other until the plot drew warmer feelings out of them As that scenario may be what we come to expect from romances, I was wondering why Forever Friday seem This struck me as a very different novel from the norm, but at first I couldn t figure out why After some thought, I decided it was because of the instant, intense love at first sight theme between Gabe and Huck, the two main characters I d just finished reading a string of novels in which the romantic duo were antagonistic toward each other until the plot drew warmer feelings out of them As that scenario may be what we come to expect from romances, I was wondering why Forever Friday seemed to work I ve heard stories of love at first sight in real life, but would have expected it to come across as a bit bland in a story context, without the emotional drive to keep us wondering how they will end up together In a way, we had it handed to us on a platter Boy meets girl when he serves her at a fish market, and wow, sparks fly What s the fun in reading that It s very well written as a historical story The details of life in that 1920s flapper jazz period made me feel drawn straight into that decade, especially its colourful, fun aspects In some ways, it slike reading the fond biography of somebody s grandparents rather than a novel.Perhaps our interest is maintained by the other main character, Adam, whose story takes place in a later time period He s a recent divorcee, still caught up in sadness and regret, who discovers a pile of old postcards which reveal Gabe, Huck and their love story The intrigue comes as we wonder what he s going to do with this historical find, and how he ll let it shape his life I was definitely wondering what he was going to learn from this old couple.I m certainly glad I read it, as it challenges me to think outside of the box when it comes to the appealing factor without relying on normal story structures we may be accustomed to.3.5 starsThanks to Net Galley and Water Brook Multnomah Publishers for my review copy 2.5 stars This book typifies why I am thinking about phasing out reviewing Christian fiction Putting the label Christian fiction on a book does not make it so There s nothing Christian about this book Smoking, drinking, immoral behavior, a so called guardian angel while almost no talk of God Himself, much less anyone even TRYING to live a godly life makes for a very poor book indeed.The story line itself had some great promise, and there are some very sweet moments, but these are cheapened by t This book typifies why I am thinking about phasing out reviewing Christian fiction Putting the label Christian fiction on a book does not make it so There s nothing Christian about this book Smoking, drinking, immoral behavior, a so called guardian angel while almost no talk of God Himself, much less anyone even TRYING to live a godly life makes for a very poor book indeed.The story line itself had some great promise, and there are some very sweet moments, but these are cheapened by the lack of any type of real Christianity, the selfishness of the two main characters especially Huck and a gratuitous attempted rape scene which wouldn t have even happened if Huck had just been honest with her husband This is supposed to be a grand love story, but it falls very short Huck and Gabe are so wrapped up in having a deep, loving, lasting marriage that is really becomes to the exclusion of all others I also had an issue with the fact that their first date , which was really all day and night, occurred while Huck was engaged to another man If you re looking for a secular love story, this might work great for you If you re looking for a Christian love story, I d advise you to look elsewhere.I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook Press through Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions are my own This is one of the best romance books I think I have read and it has been sitting on my shelf for years It is a story about the power or love and marriage After being married to the same man for 58 years, I can tell you that there is a lot of truth in this book about how to keep a marriage alive What a treat it has been to read this book.
