one of Eagle's best 9 May 2012
By Judith Arnold - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've long been a Kathleen Eagle fan, and The Last Good Man is one of her best. Savannah returns to her small Wyoming hometown, looking for a place to heal, or maybe a place to hide. But she can't hide in a town where everyone remembers her, especially Clay, who'd long carried a torch for her. And she learns that sometimes, the best way to heal is to stop hiding. Eagle fashions a love story that's mature, believable and deeply felt.

Thank you Mrs.Eagle 24 July 2000
By libera bain - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In response to the reviewer who thinks Savanah is pitiful, fortunately you haven"t walked in her shoes. Kathleen Eagle has done it again. This story of Savanah, a beautiful model with breast canser will help us all to empathise with victims of cancer. It is also a great love story between Savanah and Clay. My description of the story will not do it justice. The varied relationships are handeled so well you feel as though you have visited with real people. Do yourself and every friend or sister you know and highly reccomend this book. The only problem with Kathleens books are they leave you wanting the same degree of talent and you find most other writers are lacking. If you haven"t read her other books, pick up "SUNRISE SONG" be ready to be higly entertained educated,(without preaching), and totally blown away.

Superb Storytelling, Compelling Characters 19 May 2012
By Janga - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kathleen Eagle is a superb storyteller who creates compelling, complex characters, and The Last Good Man is one of her best books. It has lost none of its power in the dozen years since it was first published. Eagle's gift for characterization can be seen in the secondary characters such as Clay's mother, his ex-wife, Savannah's aunt, and Savannah's hairdresser friend--credible mixes of strengths and weaknesses with pieces of the lives that make them who they are revealed. Even characters who never actually appear in the book such as Kole Kills Crow and Savannah's New York friend Heather emerge as real, believable personalities. Claudia may seem improbably mature to some readers, but anyone who has ever watched a small child of a single parent caught in physical or mental illness will recognize the fierce protectiveness and caretaking that can become part of the child's nature.

Clay is wonderful, one of my all-time favorite heroes. Hardworking, competent, sexy, and nurturing with an always tender touch for the wounded and needy, human or animal, he is the man the title evokes. But he is no impossible dream. He can be angry and impatient, he can make foolish choices, and he can find it difficult to articulate his feelings. Eagle reveals enough about his past for the reader to understand that his need to take care of others is an essential and innate part of the person Clay is. Like many natural givers, Clay must learn to accept the gifts of others.

Savannah, despite her illness, is a difficult character to like for the first part of the book. She is totally self-absorbed, even to the point of avoiding her responsibilities to her child. But as the reader learns more about her and realizes why appearance is so important to her, why the changes cancer surgery have wrought in her body have so devastated her, and why she is convinced that she holds death within her, she becomes more sympathetic. Watching her grow and take responsibility for herself and others becomes a joy.

Kathleen Eagle is a gifted, intelligent writer. I highly recommend her books. If you are an Eagle fan, you know her books are definitely worth a reread. If you've never read her, The Last Good Man is a great place to start. I suggest you also look for You Never Can Tell, the story of Kole Kills Crow and Savannah's friend, New York journalist Heather Reardon, which Bell Bridge Books also plans to reissue. And I'm hoping for reissues including electronic editions of my favorites by Eagle--Reason to Believe and What the Heart Knows.

Not one of her best 30 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I look forward to every new Kathleen Eagle Novel. Her writing is superb and her stories are always so captivating that I can't wait to find out what will happen next. One of the things I've loved best about her books is that her characters don't play mind games with each other. However, this book had the tone of a historical Harlequin romance. Both characters had to constantly guess about the other's feelings and actions. What will he/she think about this? How do they really feel? Does she care that I spent the night at my ex-wife's house? There wasn't enough love or emotion between the characters for my taste. Even at the end, after having been married for many months and coming to terms with their relationship Clay still was unsure whether his wife wanted to stay with him or return to her fast-paced New York life.
I much prefer the stories where the characters are both aware of their own feelings, and want to share them with the other. That they don't still have doubts about their relationship even when the story ends.
It's worth picking up from the library, but I don't recommend buying it. It's not like "This Time Forever," "Reason to Believe," "Sunrise Song," or even "What the Heart Knows" - it's not one I would care to read again.

Annoying heroine 22 Oct. 2012
By Kiaorateora - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Famous Savannah Stephens returns home with a daughter. Clay Keogh who's been in love with her since forever realizes that her daughter looks an awful like his half brother Kole Kills Crow. The trouble is that Savannah isn't talking or explaining why she left the modeling world or why or how she became a mother to a little girl the spitting image of Kole Kills Crow.

This book is supposed to be shrouded in mystery but really it's just a story about an annoying woman who doesn't appreciate the good life she has, the good people in her life who try to help her, and especially the good man who's doing his best to love her when she doesn't even want or appreciate his love. This goes on for most of the book and when you find out what she really went through and why she left her career, all I felt like was saying "That's it? That's why you're all depressed and pathetic and a crappy mother to your daughter, not to mention a crappy niece to the aunt that raised you?" I wanted to smack her! To be fair, the reason is somewhat big but the way she handled it, in my opinion, was awful and selfish and just plain unrealistic. She needed help and she refused it and pushed people away like an ungrateful, spoiled brat. I felt bad for Clay because he's such a sweet, nice man and Savannah did her best to push him away unfairly so because she was too busy feeling sorry for herself. Well, boo hoo! I have little patience for a protaganist written like this because it makes me not root for them and just feel disgusted in her lack of backbone regardless of the troubles she faces. Furthermore, the first time Clay and Savannah have sex was rushed and ridiculous and frankly just laughable. It was one of the most unromantic sex scenes I have ever read and it pretty much sets the tone for their sexual relationship throughout the rest of the book. In the end, Clay deserved better than a woman like Savannah and it made me feel sorry for him.
