From the beginning we know how this is going to end but that only made me want to read the book even more. I really was shocked and surprised by the final events, but i suppose this is natural. Both Mary and Cobb are very interesing and strong characters and the outdoors descriptions are just splendid, it almost feels like you're in the middle of the landscapes.
I really liked the fact that the author added some animal stories and legends in the book. I like animals a lot and i really enjoyed them. They are brilliant and I really think they are very important for the story.
Overall its a very sad love story but Mary is a very strong woman and they way she assumes her condition is very impressive. I would recommend this book to everyone, but be prepared to cry and have tons of handkerchief within reach.

Eternal on the Water opens with a tragedy and then takes us to the start of a beautiful and unusual love story. From the start we know that this isn't the usual boy meets girl love story, but as we learn more about Mary and Cobb we appreciate just how different these lovers are.
Mary and Cobb take us with them as they explore unsullied nature and the power of solitude. Solitude, friendship, and the very best of companionship give the story special insight and power.
