Everlasting is Woodiwiss' final gift to her readers. The woman who started
the phenomenon known as historical romance delivers a luminous medieval
tale in her rich signature style. Though not as lyrical and filled with
narrative as her classic works, Everlasting possesses a strong sense of
place, character and dialogue, along with the dramatic plotline that's
always characterized her novels. With this last book, Woodiwiss leaves an
everlasting impression on our hearts.
Raven is there on her wedding night when Desmond falls to his death, and again when Desmond's nephew presses his suit. He rides to her rescue when she's abducted and rallies to win a tournament for her. All the while, desire builds between them until they wed. But there's jealousy and evil to overcome before peace can reign. (Morrow, Nov., 346 pp., $24.95)
