Old Fashioned Devotional and Novel Review
A few weeks ago I shared my review of the movie Old Fashioned. The movie was about an unlike couple that are dating the old fashioned way in our modern world. It was so refreshing to me, I loved it alot. It made me think of my own relationship with my husband and with my kids as well. The movie was novelized, I received both the novel and the devotional to review, any opinions are my own.
About the novelization:
Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town….and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can’t help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love. They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an “old fashioned” courtship?
The novel is pretty much a written version of the book. It does give you the opportunity to imagine the characters the way you choose. You get to learn more about Clay and his life, how he came about his logic and ideals. I loved reading the novel and I wish I had read it before the movie but each one could easily stand alone. You don’t have to read the book to watch the movie or vice versa, watch the movie to read the book. You could choose either but I think you would love them both. The book just made me love these character ever more. I really love the idea of chivalry making a comeback and I would recommend all couples picking up these resources to guide them back to a simpler way of dating.
You can purchase Old Fashioned the novel online for $10.49 from Pure Flix.
