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.

Abrielle of Harrington travels to King Henry's court, where her stepfather
is to receive recognition for his service to the king. But instead of land
or money, they receive Henry's thanks. Abrielle has no choice but to
sacrifice herself in marriage to wealthy, ruthless squire Desmond de Marle
for her family's sake. Meanwhile, Scotsman Raven Seabern has been
exchanging glances with Abrielle, drawing her attention and, for his own
reasons, becoming her protector.

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)
