The Last Good Man by Kathleen Eagle - A Review

"A good man is hard to find, but a romance by Eagle is a good place to start." -Kirkus Reviews

I have seen Kathleen Eagle's name for a long time, but never pulled one of her books off the shelf to give her a try. This is a mistake that has now been rectified.
This book, The Last Good Man, is the way I aspire to write. Ms. Eagle's characters are real people that we might know in our own lives. Their struggles, so well described, could very well be a family member or a neighbor. She takes us down to the depths of Savannah and Clay's souls. After working in a cancer center for many years, I've seen the toll cancer takes on people and the trip Savannah makes in her recovery from breast cancer is hard but hopeful.

I am glad I made the journey with Clay, Savannah and Claudia and their search for ever after.

Savannah Stephens has come home to Sunbonnet, Wyoming, after abandoning a modeling career in New York. She slips into town leaving everyone to wonder why. Good-hearted rancher, Clay Keogh, has troubles of his own but he, too, wants to find out what is troubling Savannah. Clay has loved Savannah since they were kids even though she loved Clay's half-brother, bad boy, Kole Kills Crow. Clay can't help but notice Savannah's daughter looks just like his brother and wonders if she is still in love with Kole. It's up to Clay to find out her secrets, to be there with a shoulder she can lean on. Savannah soon realizes that he's a very special man. But unless she can bring herself to share the painful truth about her fall from stardom, the emotional distance between her and Clay may separate them forever.

About the Author: Bestselling author Kathleen Eagle retired from a seventeen-year teaching career on a North Dakota Indian reservation to become a full-time novelist. The Lakota Sioux heritage of her husband and their three children has inspired many of her stories. Among her honors, she has received a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times, the Midwest Fiction Writer of the Year Award, and Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award. Library Journal named THE NIGHT REMEMBERS one of the five best romances of the year. Kathleen takes great pleasure in reading letters from readers who tell her that her books have tugged at their heartstrings, entertained, inspired, and even enlightened them.
