Book review: Kathleen E. Woodiwiss’s *Everlasting *
Preview — Everlasting by Kathleen E. It has been awhile since I even touched a romance novel, but I couldn’t resist. Abrielle everrlasting rather bad news as a potential wife. I really tried to enjoy the plot but I couldn’t. Net rated it liked it. It is a story sacrificing for another’s happine I didn’t log much about this book and I apologize for that.
This was Woodiwiss’ last romance, published inand while not as sweeping or detailed in scope, nor frankly as good as her others, it is still a fine medieval love story and I recommend it. Some sources hint that her heart was broken after the untimely death of her son, Dorren, who died weeks before she did; others say it was simply the more prosaic, but no less tragic, cancer.
She must accept the proposal from the evil brother of her late finacee, but not willingly. I hate when details are mentioned and then never referred to again. Here’s a list of her other novels: I’m glad her family allowed it to be released.
His dark and scandalous reputation is legend, and Abrielle has heard rumors that his first two wives perished by his hand.
From posts from her son, Miss Woodiwiss passed away before completing Everlasting. Segunda novela que forma parte del RetoRita2 Ha sido una historia que realmente he sufrido. The novel revolutionized mainstream publishing, everpasting an epic historical romance with a strong heroine and impassioned sex scenes.
Abrielle must marry to keep the family together and provide financial security for them. Another book that ends with me thinking “Thank God it’s over. It’s an amazing tale told by Woodwiss with amazing skill The use of amazing diction and painting pictures so vividly with only words on a page makes it all the more lovely of a read.
Kathleen Woodiwiss was the first author to make me fall in love with historical romance, so it pains me to rate this book so low. Woodiwiss quickly became one of my favorite romance authors years ago when I was in my romance phase. And the well-being of everyone she cares for demands that she honor her promise. Dashing, handsome, tall, and kind—a black-haired Scotsman with vivid blue eyes—Raven Seabern is an emissary for his king, and quite unlike any man Abrielle has ever encountered.

Everlasting by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss – Review | BookPage | BookPage
This one just did not have the same depth, perhaps because she was ill during this time. The story seemed to drag on and I was hoping for more romance then action, but as I stated above, it’s an easy rea This book was a lighthearted tale of Medieval times where traditions were strong and power led to greed.
And so, this is goodbye. If the whole book had been as good as the last few chapters, I would have rated this book higher for sure. Return to Book Page. Nov 09, Lorena rated it did not like it Shelves: I didn’t hate it. With so many antagonists in their midst, Abrielle should have been under heavy If the whole book had been as good as the last few chapters, I would have rated this book higher for sure.
At age 16, she met U. And so it does. The main character was believable if not perhaps a bit too daft and innocent-sounding, even for the time period.
This is a tale of the time when there were still difficulties between Normans and Saxons and also between England and the Scots. The romantic angst just went on for far too long. I just love this book, haven’t read it in years but when I saw it was available as a kindle edition at my library I was thrilled!!!
This made her search for a husband become an act of desperation to save her family from poverty. I think the thing I disliked the most was that once again, we’ve got a heroine who is simpering and stupid and instead of using her brain to think things through, just jumps to the most ridiculous conclusions about everything around her and we’re supposed to go along for the ride, somehow feeling empathy toward her and her situation.
This one is no different, and I ate it up very quickly.
