This is a dramatic story with lots of twists and turns that keep the hero and heroine apart for much of the book, yet unlike some other books I’ve read where this was the case, Wililamson always felt the love and wulliamson connection between them.

However, I wasn’t overly perturbed by it, because it’s obvious that he regrets that decision from the minute the wedding begins. From the moment he meets Delia, Ty is deeply attracted to her, but he has no intention of falling in love with her. Raised among the Indians but educated abroad in England, Doctor Tyler Savitch is a man with a foot in two worlds. More than anything, she yearns to be a respectable lady. Yearnong contain a number of explicitly descriptive love scenes.

The main characters also spend time among the Abenaki Indians, which was equally as engaging. The thing I loved most about Delia is that she has a huge heart with lots of selfless love to give. Ever since her mother died, her father has hit the bottle pretty hard, and he’s a mean drunk. Ty is a stubborn, enigmatic alpha male with a lot of different sides to his personality. She tries to see the good in everyone, even when they aren’t willing to give her the same chance.


In spite of her telling him otherwise, he thinks she sold her body in addition to drinks at the grog shop where she worked. As a result, he grew up among the Abenaki people with an Indian step-father he revered.

A Wild Yearning Quotes by Penelope Williamson

Her friendship with the feisty Delia and seeing the passion between Delia and Ty really helped her to come into her own. Delia wants nothing more than to escape this life, so when she sees Ty’s advertisement for a wife, she thinks it may be the answer to her prayers. When she first meets Ty, she’s very rough around the edges.

She’s tough as nails, a real fighter, who always tries to make the best of difficult circumstances. This book not only incorporates this era, but is also very well-researched.

Instead, he’s determined to deliver her as promised to the man in Merrymeeting who asked him to place the ad. He became one of them, but at the age of sixteen, his step-father insisted that he must return to his own people.

Delia is more than willing to follow the man with the magical healing hands anywhere, even if it means having to marry another.

A Wild Yearning

The secondary characters, of which there are many, are extremely well-drawn. As Delia says her vows to someone else, Ty finally understands that what he’s been feeling for her is far more than mere lust.

I very much look forward to exploring her backlist soon. A Wild Yearning is an epic love story that spans about a year and a half from start to finish, but it never felt artificially drawn out or tedious. Still, Ty can’t seem to resist the lovely Delia, who gets under his skin at every turn. 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.


That’s why she’s definitely earned a spot among my favorite romance heroines. I love Penelope Williamson’s writing style. Caleb is sweet and caring, obviously loving his wife to distraction.

These books would penelpoe appropriate for teen and sensitive readers.

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 wllliamson deep emotion and passion that I don’t always find in my romance reading. I yearnihg read A Wild Yearning probably more than twenty years ago, so when I picked it up for a reread, I remembered very little about the story.

He was born into wealth and privilege, but when he was only six, his father was killed in an Indian raid, in which Ty and his mother were taken captive.

He’s willianson only taking another wife as a matter of necessity.
