The Yielding (Age Of Faith #2)

4.21 of 5 stars 4.21  ·  rating details  ·  348 ratings  ·  30 reviews
The Unveiling, the first book in the Age of Faith series, introduced readers to the formidable Wulfrith family during Duke Henry’s battle for England’s throne in 1153. Now, four years later, Henry wears the crown, but the Wulfriths are no less defiant—and no more amenable to forging alliances through king-decreed marriage.

When I first started reading historical romance, the intimate scenes were the best. So the more sex scenes = better. Now, I'm not so inclined. I grow weary of all of the sex, I want to see more love and character development. Not to say that all of the naughty scenes should be cut out but not one on every other page as some book are. After reading the first book in the series and enjoying it despite how vanilla (clean) it was, I didn't think that the author could get any cleaner.

Well she did an
Another great one by Tamara Leigh. Seriously, she is my new fave. I just can't seem to put her books down! I mean, I have to...since I have two boys at home. :) But, there wasn't much else besides reading this getting done during nap time today. Her writing is just so beautiful and I am completely pulled into the stories.

I usually skim "action" parts, but these stories are just so perfectly woven, that the action stays connected to the love story all throughout the book--which is exactly what I
Well not my favorite Leigh book. I disliked the leading man so much I almost put it down. If I had, had anything better to do I might have. This was also not as clean as the other books by Leigh I have read and that was a disappointment. The main problem in the book has to do with an attempted rape and unfortunately that topic is brought up over and over. The leading man is also lets just say it, a blind jerk who treats woman like something for his amusement. Of course there is a reason why and ...more

The Yielding is the second book in the Age of Faith series by Tamara Leigh. So if you haven't read The Unveiling yet, I would highly recommend that you read it first. The Yielding is a wonderful continuation of the story of the Wulfrith family. While the first book focuses on Garr and Annyn, this second book focuses on his sisters, specifically Beatrix. I loved getting to know her character and by the end of the book I felt like I knew her. She was so stubborn and determined to defend herself at ...more
This is another wonderful addition to the many great books by Leigh that I have read. Continuing with the Wulfrith family, we get a glimpse at more of its characters and dive into another wonderful story. The characters were great, being realistic and engaging. Beatrix and Michael's romance is fun and sweet and slow and enticing. I loved the way they both grew and changed together. Their interactions and romance was enthralling. The story was exciting and kept the whole thing wrapped nicely toge ...more

I felt like the book was dragging. We already knew how the story was going to progress and how it was going to end. That was not the problem. The problem was it took too long to get there. If this is your first Tamara Leigh book you'll like it. Personally I loved the first book in the series (The Unveiling). I don't think I have the patience to read Gaenor's story (the third book) though.
This books continues the story of Beatrix, the sister to Garr Wulfrith from the first book. An enemy of the family wants to wed Gaenor, and so Beatrix and a knight make themselves as decoys to try and allow Gaenor to escape. Beatrix is captured and they accuse her of murder. She is attended by a physician and then she is able to get away. She hides out, but is found. She wants to clear her name and insists on standing trial even though they know that the feud between her family and the LaVonnes ...more
I give this book three out of five stars for being an entertaining read with action and fight scenes reminiscent of the first book in the series. I enjoyed the non-typical protagonist of Beatrix and the hate to love plot she had with Michael. I kept comparing this book to the first. The romantic conflict and resolution was stronger in the first book, even though the plot in this one was just as engaging.

What I liked:
1) I like the plot, and how Beatrix was set on proving her innocence. This becam

full of unnecessary angst, far too far-fetched, ridiculously historically inaccurate, way too preachy

Unfortunately the only interesting book was the first in the series (despite the ending where the heroine made a spectacle of her herself for no logical reason).

The other books in the series are full of unnecessary angst, far too far-fetched, ridiculously historically inaccurate, way too preachy (I don't mind Christian romance but not preachy), melodramatic and silly.

I got bored and quit reading

This is book 2 in the Age of Faith series about the Wulfrith family during the Medieval times. It takes place 4 years after book 1, The Unveiling. This can be read as a stand-alone but book 1 shows the political pressure that the Wulfrith family endures under King Henry and why the Wulfriths and Lavonnes are at odds with each other; both themes carry over into this book. Beatrix is a strong, devout woman whose desire is to join the convent. She helps her sister, Gaenor, escape marriage to Christ ...more
Another fun addition to the Age of Faith series. I have come to really love Ms. Leigh's medieval stories, I can't seem to put them down.

Lady Beatrix Wulfrith is helping her sister run away from an unwanted marriage. They are separated when they are pursued by the King's men. Cornered and left alone with a Knight with intent to ravish her, she fights back and he ends up dying. She is soon captured and her attackers brother, Michael D'Arci, wants her tried for murder. She escapes and goes on the
When it comes to medieval romance, Tamara Leigh is a delight! She successfully creates the setting of England in the 1100's with such vivid detail that I believe I'm there. This is the second book in her Age of Faith series, and I enjoyed it every bit as much as The Unveiling. In this book, Lady Beatrix Wulfrith is convent-bound and satisfied with her chosen vocation. But her family was deeply involved in the conflict between Stephen and Henry for the throne of England, and now that Henry has wo ...more

Second book in the Age of Faith series. Set in medieval England, my most favorite time period, this book follows Beatrix Wulfrith, sister to the fierce Garr Wulfrith and Michael D'Arci, physician to the loathed Lavonnes.
When Beatrix has the chance to allow Michael to die, does she take that chance? When Michael would soon see her dead?
Will they allow faith in God to overtake their own jealousies, murderous tendencies?
Read it and find out. You won't be sorry.
If you like reading the era of Knights and Lady's and enjoy a good read I recommend The Yielding. The main characters were so well rounded, their banter kept me entertained and how their love blossomed out of tragedy and hate was so sweet. It was also nice that the first book characters intertwined, I really fell in love with them in the first book.
This is the second book in the series and enjoyed as much as the first. I look forward to reading all the books in the series.

Love, Love, Love this book and this series! Again we are drawn into the world of AGE Of Faith. I love that these characters are struggling with their faith and love of God as well as with themselves and the circumstances they find themselves in! D'Arcy is a man that I can fall in love with and Beatrix is a girl that I can rally behind!

Love the time period and story. Authentic. Great story! Love the characters. Excellent read and awesome Christian Historical Fiction. Have already recommended to my friends!
Great medieval story. I adore Lady Beatrix and Lord Michael D’Arci is pretty intriguing in his own right.
A little slow at times. Boring at times. But overall I did like it.
This was ok. I enjoyed it but I don't think I'd listen to it again.
This is such a fabulous series! Can't wait to read the others!
I devoured The Yielding in about 24 hours! I couldn't put it down. The sequel to Tamara Leigh's The Unveiling, The Yielding picked up with our previous hero's sister. This book is filled with romantic tension, action, and our heroine's desire to do what's right in the midst of her own physical suffering. The hero in this story is not such a nice guy...he has a dark side and he does not like our heroine in the beginning of the novel. In fact, they are enemies. The resolution is more than satisfyi ...more

I love this series! I love that each book explores the next family member. I love the action & adventure. I love the romance. Fabulous!
Didn't like as much as the first, so I'm holding off on buying any more for now. Wish these were able to be available through the library.
Tamara Leigh did it again... loved it!
I officially love this series!! I will say that I think the first book, The Unveiling, was a little bit better than this one. But only because I liked Garr's character better than Michael's.
This book started out slow for me, but by the end I was completely involved and stayed up late to finish it!
I enjoyed this second book in this series. I'm looking forward to reading the third.
I am very much liking this series. I can't wait to get the next one.
First read: 7/21/13

Second read: 6/29/15. Audiobook - very good!
Great story about Beatrix.
