Eternal on the Water | [Joseph Monninger]

Eternal on the Water

From the day Cobb and Mary meet kayaking on Maine’s Allagash River and fall deeply in love, the two approach life with the same sense of adventure they use to conquer the river’s treacherous rapids. But rivers do not let go so easily - and neither does their love. When Mary’s life takes a cruel turn, she vows to face those rough waters on her own terms and asks Cobb to promise, when the time comes, to help her return to their beloved river for one final journey. This beautiful tale is 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.

Publisher's Summary

From the day Cobb and Mary meet kayaking on Maine’s Allagash River and fall deeply in love, the two approach life with the same sense of adventure they use to conquer the river’s treacherous rapids. But rivers do not let go so easily - and neither does their love. When Mary’s life takes the cruelest turn, she vows to face those rough waters on her own terms and asks Cobb to promise, when the time comes, to help her return to their beloved river for 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.

Joseph Monninger has published several award-winning young adult novels and three books of nonfiction, including the memoir Home Waters. He has been awarded two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and lives and teaches in New Hampshire, where he also runs a dogsled team.

    "a forever-on-my-shelf book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not only would I recommend this book to friends, but I ordered the hard copy for my library.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't cry easily and even though I braced myself for the inevitable ending, I found myself sobbing.


    Any additional comments?

    Eternal on the Water is a life-changing book. It prompts us to appreciate life and to be present in this moment. It calls to us to appreciate the people who share our lives. It makes you believe in the kindness of people. I loved every minute.
