Description

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.

About the author

Bill Fuller has spent nearly thirty years as a television writer and producer on shows such as Newhart, Night Court, Living Single and Hope & Faith, working closely with Queen Latifah, Kelly Ripa and Bob Newhart, among others. Before that, he indulged his passion for writing with stints in public relations and newspaper reporting.He took his first stab at writing at the age of eight when he dug out his Crayolas and wrote a sequel to Mary Poppins. He eventually traded it to a friend for three packs of Batman cards, but the fire had been lit. Years later, when he was an undergraduate at Notre Dame, he got wind of the real-life romance involving the legendary Irish halfback, George Gipp, and never quite got it out of his head. So a few years ago, he decided it was time he put his fingers to the keyboard and tell the tale, which became his first novel, The Forever Year. He’s since written one more novel, A Girl’s Guide to Landing a Greek God, which won the 2016 National Indie Excellence Award, and is hard at work on the second book in that series.He lives in Redondo Beach, California, but still holds his hometown of Warren, Ohio, close to his heart.Find Bill on the webbillfullerbooks.comand on Facebookfacebook.com/billfullerfiction
