Inspirational Historical

Cara Hamilton had thought her brother to be dead. Now, clutching his letter, she leaves Ireland for America, desperate to find him. Her search leads her to a houseful of curious strangers, and one man who claims to be a friend—Rourke Walsh. Despite her brother’s warning, Cara trusts Rourke, revealing her purpose in coming to New York.

She’s then thrust into a world of subterfuge, veiled threats, and attempted murder, including political revolutionaries from the homeland out for revenge. Her questions guide her ever nearer to locating her brother—but they also bring her closer to destruction as those who want to kill him track her footsteps.

With her faith in tatters, all hope flees. Will her brother finally surface? Can he save Cara from the truth about Rourke...a man she’s grown to love?

No I have not.
(Marissa Yip-Young 5:59am July 24, 2015)

No, I have not. I'd love to read this book as it sounds
very interesting.
Mary Hay 10:30am July 24, 2015)

I've never been, but I'd like very much to check out this book! Count me in!

I've never been to a handfasting, and it's such an unusual practice, that I wish I'd known about it. I would have incorporated it somehow into my ceremony when I got married. If I know of anyone who plans on getting married in the future, I'm going to mention this ceremony to them, and I believe it will be well-received, since it's not only a beautiful part to include, but so meaningful. Thank you for coming here and letting us know about it!! Thank you for letting us know about your latest book, too!! I already have it bookmarked on my TBR list, and can't wait to read it. It sounds like it's going to be a great read, and should do well!!

no never been
Debbi Shaw 9:24pm July 24, 2015)

I haven't been to a handfasting, however the practice, as
Thomas Pennant describes it, sounds eminently practical.
Irene Menge 12:12pm July 25, 2015)

I have never been to one.
Leona Olson 1:49pm July 25, 2015)

No I have never been to a handfasting. The closest thing was
as you mentioned that the tradition has its roots in Greece,
I went to an Armenian wedding and the couple each had crowns
on with cords/ribbons attached that were transferred.
I also find it interesting that William and Kate
incorporated the custom into their wedding ceremony.
Maryann Skaritka 4:07pm July 25, 2015)

I wanted to incorporate handfasting into my wedding ceremony but time got away from me and I never did. I wish I had. Thanks for the chance to win this interesting book.
Mary Songer 7:07pm July 25, 2015)

No, I've never been to a handfasting. I have read about it in several historical romances and it seems an interesting custom. When you think about some of the short-lived marriages we are witnesses to handfasting seems a very practical custom.
Flora Presley 9:34pm July 25, 2015)

No, I have never heard of handfasting! I would love to learn more about
this! Thank you!
Susan Patterson 1:09am July 26, 2015)

No, never heard of it, I'd love to read about it.
Wilma Frana 11:22am July 26, 2015)

I would love to win your book. I enjoy finding new authors.
Cindy Davenport 3:50pm July 26, 2015)

No , I've never been to a handfasting and this is the first time I have heard about it . It sounds very interesting .Maybe more couples will start doing that again since Prince William and Catherine Middleton did in their ceremony . Thanks for this great giveaway.
Joan Thrasher 5:23pm July 26, 2015)

No, I have not. I've read about handfasting in several
books and would love to witness a ceremony in real life.
Kerry Shaw 6:03pm July 26, 2015)

Catherine Myers 8:15pm July 26, 2015)

I love stories about Ireland. Am looking forward to reading this book (No Safe Harbor).
