   Good Thursday all or as I like to call it Friday eve . Today we are going to review the third book in The eternity series . I MARY by Mike Hartner .

                            BOOK BLURB


A girl with something to prove. A ship with endless challenges. Will a life on the water set her free?

Mary Crofter has spent her life around ships. She’s in love with the sea in an era that keeps girls far away from the deck. Breaking social norms, she joins the crew of a small ship and sets sail for a new life.
Eager to prove her mettle to the all-male crew, Mary demands she be treated no differently. She works hard in a world that finds an English civil war brewing and spies around every turn. When she meets a man who offers her a much safer life on dry land, she must choose between the promise of love and the call of the sea.
I, Mary is the third installment of the Eternity Series, a saga of seafaring adventures for both teens and adults. If you like strong female characters, immersive historical fiction, and sweet romance, then you’ll love Mike Hartner’s adventurous tale of the sea.

Buy I, Mary today to set sail for an adventure of a lifetime!

                         MY REVIEW 
     Mary Crofter has been on a sailing ship since she was two years old . As part of the Crofter shipping line she know all there is to know about the sea and the ships that sail her. She showed her merit by working along side the men crews and earned their respect and admiration. Until the day that Andrew walked into her life  Andrew the young idealistic man that will help shape the English war that was brewing . Now will she give up her love of the sea for the love of her life . 
  This is the third book in the series and is all about Mary and Andrew and their love story.  I loved that the main character was Mary and actually not Andrew . The author made Mary into a strong courageous woman . She worked hard and earned everything she got . It proves that a woman can be just as strong and love something that is mostly a male dominated profession . She wasn't  sit at  home letting herself be waited on hand and foot . When she was on land she took every opportunity to study and learn everything she could . I truly liked her as a character . I think she would be a great role model for and girl that reads this book .  Andrew is every girls dream he is strong and sweet and has a strong sense of morality . He wants to help his clans as the war brews . You actually cheer for him when he is off defending his land against the British . They are a really sweet couple that will sweep you off your feet with their pure undying love that lasts until and beyond the grave . l
   I truly enjoy these books .  We meet the main characters between the ages of 11 - 12 and we watch them grow up through out the book . The author takes us on grand adventures on the sea and in some exotic ports . He also mixes great historical facts into the story that will keep you entertained . I love how the author ties the stories together . by mentioning the ending of the last book in the new book.  I will say that this book had me crying the last 5 chapters . So when you read this one have tissues ready cause you will need them . So if you want a series that you and your kids can read this is the series for you , Check them out for your fall reading list
