The Last Good Man

"Gorgeous, famous Savannah Stephens is back, and no one in her hometown, Sunbonnet, Wyoming, really knows why. Especially not Clay Keogh, the good-hearted rancher who has loved her from afar since they were kids. Savannah's young daughter looks just like Savannah's first love: local bad boy Kole Kills Crow, Clay's half-brother.

Has Savannah come home to start a new relationship with Kole?Whatever her secrets, it's clear that she's deeply troubled and needs a shoulder to lean on. Clay is there for her, and she soon realizes that he's a very special man. But until 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."

Kathleen Eagle tells a love story that will last a life time in her novel, The Last Good Man. The character connection throughout the entire novel is simply amazing. Eagle describes the characters and their motives in such a way that readers couldn't not connect with them. 

Savannah was once a famous model, but now she's returned to her hometown without much to say to anyone. After fighting breast cancer and surviving, Savannah has a hard time accepting that she's alive. Savannah was face to face with death and she won, thanks to her radical decisions and no-nonsense attitude toward beating cancer. 

But now, she doesn't know how to live without being afraid of death. Eagle writes Savannah's story in such a deep and believable way that readers will completely understand why she's having such a difficult time dealing with her survival. 

The Last Good Man is a love story, but it's also more than that. It's about trying to find a reason to live, to love, and to keep going when you're surrounded with nothing but obstacles. It also focuses on how the people around you can help if only you'd let them. 

The supporting cast of characters include Savannah's daughter, Clay (childhood friend/hero), Aunt Billie, and a few others who pop in later in the novel. The supporting characters all play a role in helping Savannah find her life again. Eagle shows the reader that without help from others around you, it's easy to lose the hope and faith that life requires.
