Book Description

RITA Award Winner for Best Single Title Contemporary Novel

She’d helped convict him of a crime he didn’t commit.
Now she wants his help adopting the son he never knew he had.
Seeking refuge in a world not her own, Susan Ellison follows her conscience to the reservation of the Lakota Sioux, hoping to heal the wounds of her ravaged heart.
Sentenced to life in prison, former rodeo champion Cleve Black Horse seeks freedom and justice.
Two lonely outcasts separated by culture, stubborn pride and prison bars, their destinies are joined by a shared duty to a helpless child — and by the blossoming of a bold and magnificent love that a cruel, intolerant society forbids.
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. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book That Captures The Soul... February 13, 2000
By CM
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read Kathleen's books for years and they just get better and better BUT this is my all time favorite book. There is something about this book that just captures the reader's soul and draws them into the storyline. I have read this book hundreds of times and every single time I can never put it down. The intricate way the storyline is interwoven keeps the reader on their seat wondering what the next move will be; while the chemistry between the hero and heroine is so obvious it brings tears to one's eyes watching them fumble their way along to each other - I've recommend this book to all my friends and family over and over. Everytime I get the same response, "That book is marvelous! I don't usually read romances but I LOVED this book! etc.". I've yet to receive a negative response about this book. Truly, I believe this is Kathleen's greatest piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average cookie-cutter romance! October 26, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found "This Time Forever" to be a very satisfying and refreshing romantic read. The characters of Susan and Cleve are three-dimensional - very real, very human, and, in ordinary circumstances, perhaps even unremarkable. It's the extraordinary circumstance which bring these two together -- Susan, a white woman, serving on a jury that convicts Cleve Black Horse, a half-breed Indian and former rodeo champion, of murder -- which sets the stage for a remarkable and touching story that will stay with you long after you've read it.
Susan tries to cope with the knowledge that she may have helped send an innocent man to prison; Cleve, wrongly accused, has to pick up the pieces of his shattered life and learn to forgive and trust.
Another extraordinary circumstance brings Susan and Cleve together again, and the seed of bitterness slowly and sweetly blossoms into friendship and then love in a most natural way. A beautifully touching and unforgettable story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! September 22, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't usually read romance novels, but something about this one made me pick it up and read it. I'm so glad I did! The story is engrossing, the characters are interesting, and the writing is great. Rarely am I this sorry when I finish a book...but I also couldn't put it down. So romantic, so well-told, so satisfying!

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am not the type who likes realistic elements in a story , but even though this one has realistic elements from life , i really enjoyed it. The characters are lovely written and their bumping into each other causes you this anticipation to see what will happen next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her Best Ever February 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I could read this story over and over again. What fabulous characters. Cleve is a stronger man that he believes, trying to deal with prison, then what to do with his life after spending time in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Susan just wants custody of a boy who is, in all important ways, her son.
The story is so well written that you don't ever want it to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a romance March 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
But still a great read. I had a hard time with this book at first, but I had to set some pre-conceive notions aside. Once I got a grasp of the time period and gave up my romance ideals, I found I really enjoyed the book and did not want it to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and well written August 16, 2011
By Jools39
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Of all the books of this genre that I purchase from Amazon this is one of the best. Kathleen eagle writes of the American Indian peoples with sensitivity and respect, horn no doubt of her close ties with them through her own family. This too was a well written story with an unusual relationship between the two protagonists. It is obviously well researched and as always in her books, draws you into the nit yet resolved conflicts in American society between the first nations and those that took their land. Compared to other books in this genre this one stands out as well written and has intelligent dialogue, so rare in this type of novel! I would thoroughly recommend it to readers, it is a moving love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly re-readable February 12, 2013
Format:Paperback
I have reread this book so many times. Why?

I am always captured by healthy, present, aware, loving interaction between a man and his children or the children he is responsible for.

"Just teaching him how to arm wrestle. He always wants to use his right hand, but if I don't let him use it--see?" He pinned Sam's right arm to his side and let him use his left to grapple with two of Cleve's fingers, which Sam wanted in his mouth. "He works his left side a little more." This Time Forever by Kathleen Eagle

It's a compelling love story even though the two who eventually end up a couple, meet in circumstances that don't lend themselves to falling in love. The twists and turns that Kathleen employs to bring about that love, are unexpected, yet ordinary and completely believable.

This Time Forever is not a book I would have chosen to read based on the synopsis or the back cover. And, yet, as I said, I go back and reread it over and over again because I love it so much.

Little baby Sam, in the book, is a special needs child. Hero Cleve is in prison for something he didn't do for part of the book. Yet, these books are hopeful and upbeat but not in a whitewash-the-truth way.

I don't think of myself as a cowboy-hero-fangirl. But I fell in love with this cowboy hero, who is actually an American Indian.

Heroine Susan is likable, lovable, flawed and yet admirable, respectable.
The secondary characters are appropriately lovable, hate-able, pity-able.
