In 1852, on a steamer from France to England, nineteen-year-old
Theresa Longworth met William Charles Yelverton, a soldier destined to
become the Viscount of Avonmore. Their flirtation soon blossomed into a
clandestine, epistolary affair, and five years later they married
secretly in Edinburgh. Then, that same summer, they married again in
Dublin - or did they?

Separated by circumstance soon after they were wed, Theresa and
Charles would never live together as husband and wife. And when
Yelverton married another woman, an abandoned Theresa found herself
forced to prove the validity of her marriage. Multiple trials ensued,
and the press and the public seized upon the scandal and reported its
every detail with relish. Wild Romance is the inspiring tale of a
woman who never gave up, and who held on to her ideals of independence,
dignity and - despite everything - love.
