8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Book Maven on Oct. 31 2007
Format: Hardcover
Her carer began over thirty years ago with her first novel The Flame and the Flower and The Wolf and the Dove Woodiwiss passed away recently, but we have one last opportunity to enjoy a new novel from her, the beautiful and memorable Everlasting The heroine of Everlasting Lady Abrielle, is lovely, bright and well-bred--the toast of the English royal court. Every nobleman wants to marry her. Yet when her stepfather loses a chance at great wealth, Abrielle no longer has money or property to bring to a marriage. Now, the only man who'll have her is a wealthy but cruel and vulgar brute rumored to have murdered his first two wives. Abrielle resigns herself to her duty--remember, back in those days, women had little to no choice in whom they wed.

Yet, if Abrielle could choose her mate, it'd be Raven Seabern, the dashing Scottish ambassador who can't seem to keep his stunning blue gaze from hers. Raven is considerate, yet masterful and nobody's fool. He awakens in Abrielle new emotions and sensations with one intimate dance and a single, stolen kiss. But one fateful night, Abrielle's fortune changes. A gruesome occurrence forces her to become a competent woman instead of an uncertain young maiden. And now Abrielle has to decide if she's ready for everything that goes along with getting exactly what one wishes for.

Everlasting is a lovely and engaging novel. It entices the reader with a charming central love story surrounded by intrigue, action and plenty of heroines in dire straits. An appealing and sweetly sensual final offering to readers who remain devastated by the loss of the author. And it is, perhaps, a gift to readers yet to discover the charm, passion and inspirational quality of her books. For discover her they shall. As long as women continue to support this magnificent genre, they will read--and pay homage to--the woman who made it possible. Also, if you missed reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates, go and read it.

Totally disappointed Nov. 4 2007
By Kathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kathleen Woodiwiss introduced me to romance novels 30 years ago with Flame and the Flower and Wolf and the Dove. She is my all time number one favorite author. My all time favorite book is Shanna. So my disappointment with Everlasting is extreme. I found this book boring and was skimming by page 30. There was no characterization. All the characters seemed one dimensional. The dialog was stilted and cumbersome. I was so looking forward to her last book so I hate to say these things since we will never get another book by this fabulous author. If you are new to her books stick with the early ones and skip this one.

Everlasting Gift Nov. 4 2007
By Leah Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Everlasting is a wonderful,old-fashioned historical romance by the late, great writing talent Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. If you're a long-time fan such as I, you'll enjoy this tale of loss, betrayal, redemption and true love set in 1135 England. Raven Seabern, the hero, is one of my favorites. He would do anything for his love, Lady Abrielle, whether she deserves it or not. Luckily, Abrielle doesn't spend too much time being stubborn and grows from an uncertain girl frightened of her circumstances to a strong, compassionate woman. This is a lovely parting gift to fans from this unique and exceptionally talented author. She will be greatly missed but I am so glad she has shared, one last time, the beauty of her written word with all of us, her readers.

Disappointed! Nov. 10 2007
By R. Persaud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I can't believe this book was written by KEW! I have read and enjoyed her books for so long, I was excited to see a new one. This book reads like the outline of a book. The characters are flat, the details are skimped. One of the things I've always loved about her books is that I have felt transported in time reading them. For the most part, aside from a scant few historical references thrown in, I had no sense of the time setting. Someone gets sick, OH< all of a sudden the heroine is a healer...could this have been mentioned before? I am so sorry there won't be any new Woodiwiss books to look forward to. I wonder if this book was begun before the author's death, and put together by someone else after, if so, they have done her a grave disservice.

A simple tale of love and war set in the 12th century Oct. 26 2007
By Helen Hancox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
'Everlasting' follows the fortunes of Abrielle Harrington, a beautiful young woman whose fiancé died by falling down the stairs at his Keep a day before the wedding. Abrielle's mother Elspeth and stepfather Vachel have unfortunately fallen upon hard times and are virtually penniless. The heir to Abrielle's late fiancé, Desmond de Marlé, has conceived a passion for her and wants her - unfortunately Abrielle finds him repulsive. Since he inherited the de Marlé Keep the serfs have been badly treated and half starved.

The only person who interests Abrielle is Raven Seabern but he's a Scot so not appropriate for her, especially as he doesn't seem particularly interested in her, just seems to watch her. In the end, in order to save the family from penury, Abrielle agrees to marry Desmond de Marlé and counsels her stepfather to arrange the biggest payment possible for her - which he does.

Abrielle seems rather bad news as a potential wife. Her first fiancé died on the eve of the wedding, her second lasts slightly longer, but all too soon Abrielle is on her own again, this time with a great deal of money and with suitors flocking round her, as well as those who would do her evil trying to get at her. Throughout all this, Raven Seabern is a constant, often rescuing her or protecting her, and yet Abrielle doubts his motives. Can a Scotsman and a Saxon woman ever get along?

The writing style of this book is very simple with light descriptions of places and events, no very deep characterisation and a plot that was never very taxing. It's always easy to spot the 'baddies' as they smell or have rotting teeth or are fat; the 'goodies' are always attractive, clean, lean and with good teeth! The story is really a collection of events including kidnappings, sieges and rescues, through which Abrielle learns to trust Raven. It's a pleasant enough read but nothing special.
