It’s not everyday that I can begin a book review with that word.
That’s right, I am almost completely speechless. I worry that the words I use to describe this book will not do it justice. This book that is part The Notebook,, part Mr. Hollands Opus, and part Romeo and Juliet.
A love story that is based on Yeti love. Being in a universe, on a continent, in a country, in a state, in a county, on a river, in a small yellow boat. All of these things had to happen in order for Mary Fury and Jonathan Cobb to meet and fall in love.
The love story that transcends borders. Beginning on a river in Maine, to Indonesia, to Yellowstone and back. Their love was so sudden and so right, that they would follow each other anywhere and promise each other anything.
When Mary’s life takes a turn, she vows to bow out gracefully on the river she loves and where they fell in love. She makes Cobb promise that they will return together for one last farewell.
I began crying on page 325 and didn’t stop for 30 minutes after the last page was read.
By far my favorite passage in this book.. “..We don’t fear birth, so why do we fear death so much? No one knows where we were before we came into the world. After we leave the world, we’ll be okay, too.”
Inspiring, emotional, endearing. Three simple words to describe this book.
Because this book touched in a way that not many books have, I want to share it with you, my readers.
I am giving away my copy of Eternal on the Water for your reading pleasure.
