Adam Colby discovers an old photo album while preparing for an estate sale in a coastal Texas town. The contents, years of post cards sent from a man to his wife, inspire Adam to search for the couple’s story. Gabe and Pearl “Huck” Alexander, meet and fall in love during the early twentieth century. Convinced that failed marriages are the result of The Long Division, a series of small events that continue to separate a couple, Gabe sends Huck a post card every Friday with a poem declaring his love. This continues for six decades, until his death. Afterwards, when Huck’s memory fails, she is sure that a card is coming in the mail each Friday. Through their story, Adam learns the keys to a successful marriage, trust and hope.
This novel was based on a true story. The author discovered antique postcards in a photo album containing an original love poem from each Friday at the estate sale for his great aunt and uncle. This inspired him to not only write this story, but also to write love poems for his wife. It is certainly the basis for a charming love story.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
