The Forever Year

The Forever Year

Historical Fiction

Coming June 7, 2016

The epic love story you never knew…

The Roaring Twenties: Pool rooms, dance halls, speakeasies. A legendary football hero whose devil-may-care charm belies a tortured soul. A beautiful girl who strains at the bonds imposed by a straitlaced father.

Meet George Gipp and Iris Trippeer, whose love burned brighter than a comet in a pitch-black sky, only to be cut short by a tragedy that rocked the nation. Weaving fact and fiction, The Forever Year follows the star-crossed lovers from breathless first meeting to deathbed promise, framed by the perspective of an older, wiser Iris looking back on the love of her life and resolving to put some painful unfinished business to rest at last.

The Forever Year is inspired by the heartbreaking true story of how one headstrong girl claimed the heart of an American icon.
