Item description for Claddaugh by Tammy Doherty...
Overview John's Amazing Mystery: The Unveiling draws back the curtain, lets in the light, and allows the biblical epic of Revelation to become user-friendly. Current events are laid alongside the ancient text, and its numerous parables are translated into living language and recognisable situations. The book accepts that global trauma may point to a present-day Apocalypse, though this is seen as just one alternative in several scenarios. The writer sets the scene by first drawing attention to what Jesus said about His promised return to earth and what we may expect will happen in the Last Days. The book then follows the outline of Revelation through seven astounding visions, each of which is analysed according to a set pattern. The cracking of codes is a feature of the work. Some innovative methods are employed whereby the mysterious becomes visible and believable. The book is set within the context of eternal issues.

Reviews - What do customers think about Claddaugh?
a nice passive read Feb 13, 2005
Leigh does not love her husband and it is clear that he does not love her. She was chasing a dream when they wed, one which he could not fulfill. Her family ties to wealth are what attracted his attentions. His sister insisted upon the match; she ruled over him all of his life. Leigh's brother Kyle must be clandestine when visiting her in Philadelphia for David Parker is a jealous and suspicious man, even though he views Leigh as a possession, not a wife. It is through these visits and the trouble of her being brought in for questioning for passing counterfeit bills that Leigh learns the secret service is watching her husband, and she decides to become an informant.
Living with her husband and his controlling sister becomes dangerous as it is discovered that Leigh is with child. As the secret service closes in Kyle should have sent her to stay with family, but he doesn't. During a confrontation, Leigh faces peril and is hospitalized. What follows is a struggle with morality, old feelings and present dangers. Will Leigh ever be happy? Can she allow herself that?
While an enjoyable read, I found the plot weak and subsequently, the supporting sub-plots to be drawn out and somewhat lacking. I could not relate to the inner turmoil that Leigh contemplated, as it seemed a bit too pure and forced. The idea of the Claddaugh is a delight to see brought into play though and the relationships in the story are cause for thought and study in sociology. "Claddaugh" is a nice passive read...not quite romance and not quite adventure, it is a work of fiction that demonstrates life of over 100 years ago through the troubled eyes of a likeable heroine.
