Mary Tate Engelsabout this book: Claire's Embrace, Love Lottery Bride
What if … your loving father sells lottery tickets for your hand in marriage? And he does it because of a desire to send you out into the world with a better life. Claire, only daughter of a pub owner in County Kerry, Ireland in the '60's, fights and kicks her way through trying to figure how to turn No Way Out into an acceptable choice.
Claire appears as the mature matriarch in Embraceable You set in Haven's Point, Maine. Her point of view is so vivid and her story so poignant, it just has to come out. In Claire's Embrace, a prequel to the Irish Heart Series, we see her predicament and what she does about it. Arranged marriages aren't so unusual in some cultures. But will it work for Claire, a headstrong and beautiful Irish girl? She has her own ideas for a handsome husband.
Claire's daughter, Brianna, completes the circle by going back to Ireland in Secret Embrace. She finds herself in a dangerous situation, choosing between two brothers and her heart's desire.
Claire's Embrace reveals the origins of the O'Sullivan family heirlooms including a fiddle, that amazing Irish lace, and the recipe for the best ever Irish Whiskey Cake. Is the lace magical or just the strong will of the owner? Claire doesn't believe until her new husband gives her a way out. Then she gets to choose her heart's desire. What would you do?
