Why authors ♡ their characters – by B. J. Tiernan

on 11/02/2017

Beverly Tiernan is a caring person and dedicated author whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and collaborating with in the last few years, ever since having read her Standing on a Whale. Her latest book Yield is out and conveys a wonderful story of  woman’s struggle to find love in the midst of chaos.

Why I love Marley Cover – by B. J. Tiernan

YIELD is a story about struggle, the ravages of World War II, and the sweeping changes taking place in America as it enters the Vietnam War.

I love the character, Marley Cover, because she is a beacon, a breath of fresh air in the middle of the suffocating Vietnam War. Her purpose is clear in her subconscious and in her heart. She is determined to find love and the man of her dreams at all costs. Love is important to Marley as is her desire to have a family. Fate throws her an unexpected twist when she meets Warren on her wedding day. Already married, but not experiencing the love she craves, she is now determined to figure out a way to have this man who sets her heart on fire. Marley has a tenacity and a determination that carries her through some extremely tough patches, but she always moves with love. She knows she can never possess the man she desperately longs for, but her deep acceptance of life’s challenges always pulls her ahead.

I feel for Marley. I ache right along with her. This is why I love her. She makes me feel – her anguish, her pain, and her deep, devoted love.
