OVERVIEW

Adam Colby is a divorced estate-sale businessman. After watching twelve years of marriage go down the drain, he’s not sure he believes in love or God anymore. But through reading postcards found at one of his estate sales, Adam discovers the story of a life long romance that might be able to help him find his way back.

The postcards explains how Gabe knows from the first day he meets Huck Huckabee she is the girl for him. After a whirlwind romance, Gabe and Huck begin their new life together in 1920s Texas. Together they face life’s harsh realities and greatest joys. When Huck is feeling most discouraged she knows she can rely on two things: the hope that is found in God, and a postcard from her husband every Friday.

Lewis does a wonderful job of bringing his characters to life. He creates a story that is both beautiful and enthralling; with important lessons about faith and marriage woven throughout. Although the whirlwind romance is somewhat idealized, the story rings true overall.
