About the book:
From the day Jonathan Cobb and Mary Fury meet on the banks of Maine's Allagash River, they approach life with the same adventurous spirit with which they conquer the river's treacherous rapids. But rivers do not let go so easily. And so for them, the life they love demands equally that they confront the most difficult of choices, and vow, when time and illness necessitate, to return to the river together so that Mary can make one final journey. Set against the rugged wilderness of Maine, the exotic islands of Indonesia, the sweeping panoramas of Yellowstone National Park, and the tranquil villages of rural New England, Eternal on the Water is at once heartbreaking and uplifting--a timeless, beautifully rendered story of true love's power.
drey's thoughts:
Eternal on the Water starts off as a a downer of a book--with a death. But as you continue reading, it takes that downer and turns it into a truly lovely love story. A story about a girl and a boy who meet, and realize they're meant to be together. A story about life and death. A story about love and the choices we make, regardless of the ramifications we face down the road, regardless of how much--or little--time we have together. A story full of little instances where love, and life, is shared. A story about a celebration of life.

Make sure you have a supply of tissues handy when you read this. And yes, that's when, not if.
