Book review: Kathleen E. Woodiwiss’s *Everlasting *

I’ve loved other books by this author, but can’t say I loved this one. Abrielle’s mother, Elspeth, and stepfather, Vachel, have unfortunately fallen upon hard times and are virtually penniless.

I’m still drawn to her books and after reading this one have considered going back and rereading some others.

The characters are annoying. Desmond is an oafish, grotesque, yet wealthy squire and her greedy stepfather can’t see past his wealth.

It’s amazing he is so driven to succeed when she is nasty to only him when he never did anything wrong. It was actually getting tedious. Luckily, a mysterious and handsome Scotsman, Raven, arrives.

Woodiwiss William Morrow Hardcover pages October It is a story of frustration. I don’t know how much of the published book is her work, but her ,athleen are missing.
