Joe and kathy,
Thanks so much for bringing this book to us. The subject matter was tender and thought-provoking all at the same time. I hope you can tell from the discussions how much enjoyment and engagement EOTW brought to this group of readers. I'm expecting to see some excellent reviews from the major presses and a solid sales success. Other book clubbers should flock to this one, I'd think.
Fellow First Lookers, as always, thanks for your thoughtful and heartfelt comments. I never fail to gain some insight from following the discussions, and at least once a day I think, "Good point!"

I would like to add my heartfelt thanks to all.
Joe, thanks for sharing your beautiful novel with us here, and for joining us in our discussions and answering our questions, as well!
Thank you, Kathy, as well, for joining us here at the First Look!
Of course, thanks to Rachel and Paul and everyone at Barnes & Noble for providing this opportunity.
And many thanks to all the First Look members, as always! It is such a pleasure to be part of this group!

This was a unique and fun experience for me. It was my first involvement within the First Look forum. It was enlightening and thought provoking and Rachel-K, you really did a great job as moderator! Thank-you!
Thank-you as well to all the people that put this together and very special thanks to Joe and Kathy for taking the time to answer and respond to our questions and thoughts.

Thanks for a great novel. I'm not sure I would have found this one on my own and I am very glad that I didn't miss it!

Thank you Joe, Kathy and everyone in this group. This has been my first experinece in an online Book Club. Also my first experience in the First Look Book group. I guess I missed the notice for Before the Fall, but I did see the one for the Poacher's Son so I hope to get in on that discussion.
Again I thoroughly enjoyed Eternal on the Water. I think it is a book that I would have picked up in the book store as it caught my attention from the very first page and from the jacket.
Thanks for this opportunity and for everyone's input!

Thanks Kathy for all your insightful answers on the editing process. They were so much fun to read.
Thanks to B&N, Rachel and Paul for all the hard work you do to allow us this great opportunity.
Thanks to all my fellow First Lookers. Your thoughts on the novel always make me dig a little deeper while reading. I'm looking forward to discussing another book with you all soon!

Thanks so much to everyone for the opportunity to read and discuss Eternal on the Water. A special thank you to Joe for sharing your thoughts with us. I love a book and discussion where I learn new things --- I learned a lot this month!
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.
