Residing in rural southern Oklahoma, its only been within the last seven years that Thomas Kidwell has come to fully express his passion for writing. In his novel, Forever Will, he writes about a very unlikely romance that is patterned after a true-life event that unfolded in Virginia during the turbulent years of the Civil War and the reconstruction years thereafter. That such a romance could flourish between two seemingly opposite people would be difficult to fathom in todays society, but such a romance not only occurred, it endured. Thomas leads us by the hand while we experience the daily toils, traumas, and passions of two very special peoplepeople who arose from the ashes of war to make a better life for themselves.
Forever Will is truly a fascinating read with a distinct message sent to us over the span of time: Love will endure. Dr. H. Norman Stillwell
