Forever Friday

Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis interested me as it is a love story mainly set in the 1920's.

After the first several chapters I glanced back at the front cover to see the author's name again and wasn't surprised to realize I was reading a romance book written by a man. The style seemed a bit off. For example, the two main characters meet for only a few minutes (at most) at the beginning but can't stop thinking about each other and go so far as to think thoughts like getting a better job to be able to provide more when they get married? It seemed so unrealistic.

One of the main points of the book was the concept of "long division" and how things like work, children, and daily life can push married couples apart from each other. Instead of showing a romantic story about how to pull all these things together and make a great marriage the author made it seem as though the only reason that this relationship was able to stay so passionate was because there were no children involved. I actually felt, several times, that this couple was a bit selfish.

I didn't fall in love with the characters in this book or the exact story line. With that said, I did like how the book showcased our guardian angels as maybe strangers that we meet throughout life and the book did keep me entertained.
