LOVE ETERNAL tells the story of Ian, a young man whose life is dominated by death. Ian’s first introduction to death comes at the age of six, when he loses his father. It isn’t long before a second bereavement. Afraid of life, Ian begins to distance himself from the world. When his mother dies, Ian’s life takes a turn. He has been thrown completely upon his own resources. Thanks to a book, from his mother, Ian recognizes that caring for other people can give life meaning. When he meets the depressed Naomi, and gets her to abandon her suicide plans, a friendship develops – a friendship that saves him as well. Ian learns to fall in love again with life and the living.
