Review--So Wild the Heart

So Wild the HeartSo Wild the Heart by Geoffrey Trease
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good story with a hero so beta he's way over into gamma, delta and epsilon territory. Adam is a young man from a poor background with a bright mind, who's focused on achieving success at Oxford. He's obsessed with creating the definitive translation and history of an obscure Roman poet...who may be obscure for a good reason.

He's finally pulled away from his studies for a summer trip where he can do some research in Italy, and suddenly his life begins to get interesting.

A sweet and gentle romance is wrapped around this coming of age story set in the Regency period. I didn't label it a romance, but it's been recommended to me by other romance authors and it will satisfy people looking for that romantic element that makes us smile while we're reading.
