As Delia says her vows to someone else, Ty finally understands that what he’s been feeling for her is far more than williamsn lust. The characters were very relatable and the plot was engaging. To the best of my recollection, A Wild Yearning is the only book I’ve read by Penelope Williamson, but this time around, it most certainly isn’t going to be my last. As a farmer, there’s much work to be done on his homestead as well as two little girls for whom to care, but Nat still deeply loves his first wife and probably shouldn’t have married again so soon after her death, regardless of the need.

Teen and sensitive readers should exercise caution. The thing I loved most about Delia is that she has a huge heart with lots of selfless love to give.

She hopes it won’t come to that though, and that along their journey, he will come to realize he loves her as much as she yearnkng him, especially after he sweetly makes love to her in the forest. Ty is a stubborn, enigmatic alpha male with a lot of different sides to his personality.

When she sees an advertisement in the newspaper for a man who is looking for a wife willing to travel to Maine to look out for his two children, Delia eagerly responds. Believing there’d be no harm in sampling her charms and that it might get her out of his system, Ty seduces and makes tender love to her along the trail. A Wild Yearning By: She falls in love at first sight with the dashing doctor, only to find out that he placed the ad for another man from the Maine settlement where he lives.

Still, Ty can’t seem to resist the lovely Delia, who gets under his skin at every turn.

Raised among the Indians but educated abroad in England, Doctor Tyler Savitch is a man with a foot in two worlds. She tries to see the good in everyone, even when they aren’t willing to give her the same chance.


The author really brought the setting to life with her vivid descriptions of life in a small settlement in Colonial Maine as well as the environmental details that truly made me feel like I’d been transported to another time and place.

He has a hard time living with himself after that, but the deep abiding connection between him and Delia is still there, even as she’s trying to make a life with someone else. I did seem to recall that I’d enjoyed it, and my reread of it proved that to be quite true.

The other thing Ms. Williamson is extremely good at is drawing the historical setting. When she first meets Ty, she’s very rough around the edges.

After experiencing a great deal of loss in his life, he’s very reluctant to love anyone. I very much look forward to exploring her backlist soon.

I first read A Yearninng Yearning probably more than twenty years ago, so when I picked it up for a reread, I remembered very little about the story.

The love scenes were quite steamy and sensual for a book written inwhich was a plus for me, not just because I like my love scenes hot, but because they were imbued with a deep emotion and passion that I don’t always find in my romance reading. Ever since her mother died, her father has hit the bottle pretty hard, and he’s a mean drunk. Delia and Ty’s romance is one fraught with heartache, passion, and danger, but through it all Delia is a trooper.

I loved watching her grow s change, facing the challenges set x her with grace and dignity. Even after discovering that she yearninh was a virgin, he keeps his heart locked up tight, turning her over to the other man upon their arrival in the settlement.

She doesn’t really know the first thing about how to accomplish that, but she’s a quick learner when opportunities present themselves.

As a result, he grew up among the Abenaki people with an Indian step-father he revered. Delia is the focal point of the story and a very strong female protagonist. Everyone, including Ty, thinks she’s a fallen woman, but in reality, she had enough pride and backbone to avoid prostituting herself to penellope money, a fact which I admired.


A Wild Yearning – Book Review – The Hope Chest Reviews

The secondary characters, of which there are many, are extremely well-drawn. If only he’d realized he was falling in love with her before it was too late The stand-outs include, Nat, the man who Ty brought Delia to marry.

Not that we don’t get Ty’s or other characters’ POVs, but I felt like wjld book was more about Delia’s journey from a grog shop serving girl in Boston to the more respectable woman she longs to be. They have something of a secondary romance as they work through some difficulties in their marriage.

At his heart, he’s a good man though.

I love Ty’s idealistic nature and how he wants to help people and tries peneloppe stand up for the oppressed. These books should still be appropriate for most mature teens and sensitive readers. This book not only incorporates this era, but is also very well-researched. He became one of them, but at the age of sixteen, his step-father insisted that he must return to his own people.

A Wild Yearning

May contain moderately descriptive love scenes, usually no more than three. He brought his knowledge back to the Colonies, where he lives in the small settlement of Merrymeeting, much to his grandfather’s chagrin.

More than anything, she yearns to be a respectable lady. Elizabeth is very timid and reluctant to go to a remote wilderness settlement. Nat’s two daughters, Meg and Tildy, were perfectly rendered.

However, I wasn’t overly perturbed by it, because it’s obvious that he regrets that decision from the minute the wedding begins. In fact, the title is quite apt, as the author is very talented at bringing out that deep sense of yearning yearniny both of them until they finally come together once and for all. Penelope Williamson Star Rating: Her friendship with the feisty Delia and seeing the passion between Delia and Ty really helped her to come into her own.
