When I picked this book up for the first time I couldn't put it down! This is one of my favorites and I have reread it over and over again. The book actually made me cry and that's a pretty amazing feat considering the fact that I never cry about anything. I liked the main characters immensly and I felt that they had a lot of depth. Delia is one of those heroins that you can identify with. And the hero, Dr. Ty, is all too human, I felt that he had all the human weaknesses that make us who we are, and those weaknesses combined with his strength and courage made me practically fall in love with him myself. The secondary characters also had a lot of depth and were vital to the story. The story was full of adventure,humor, tragedy and heartache, and most importantly: love. The book kept me turning the pages to see what happened next! All in all i would say that this is an excellent read and should definately be kept!

"A Wild Yearning" had a lot going for it, but there were just too many things that I didnt like about it. First of all, let me just say that I admire Penelope Willamson and have read quite a bit of her work. The heroine of "A Wild Yearning", Delia, was fantastic. She was completely outspoken and didnt hold in her feelings at all. I adored her. That being said, I couldnt warm to Ty. He was so arrogant. It drove me crazy the way he was so inconsisent with Delia. He was immature and selfish and he drove me insane. However,Ty's behavior I could have handled... To me, the biggest drawback of this book was its length. I dont have problem with a nice meaty read, but this book just wore out its welcome plain and simple. Too many obstacles were thrown in and it slowed the books pace and frustrated me to no end. All in all, this story was by no means bad, but it is not one that I will read again.

What a great story!...again! I have turned into Ms Williamson's #1 fan in the romance category. I hope she doesn't completely turn her back on a genre in which she has so much to offer. I have now tracked down her only 2 novels that I do not yet own and dread the day I have no new PW novels on my shelf.
Another classy, exciting, believeable read is assured with this story; a great adult love with sexiness & tenderness & all the emotional angst you can handle and more. Even though her stories, like with most writers, have a slight similarity in storyline PW very adeptly gives each one a twist to make it fresh & unique & engaging.
If you like Judith McNaught or the Outlander series, if you like believable grown-up romances with some real depth and drama to them, just buy all of Penelope's books. You won't be disappointed.
