The Engineered Engagement is here!
From the Back Cover:
A Kennebrae keeps his word.... But Grandfather made the promise, and Eli Kennebrae is expected to carry it out. Josie Zahn has admired Eli from a distance for years, but Eli hardly knows she exists other than as just "one of the Zahn girls." If only she could get his attention... When Father announces her older sister Clarice's engagement to Eli, both girls are crushed. Is there no way out of this nightmare? Deception, intrigue, and danger make life miserable for the Zahns and the Kennebraes as they learn that Divine enginneering is far better than human manipulation.
About the writing of the book.
This book was the first NaNo novel I completed. The entire first draft was written over about three weeks in November of 2008, then editing took place over the next six weeks or so. I loved writing it, as I had lived for a long time with these characters in my head. The heroine, Josie, and I have a lot in common. We both struggled with feeling as if we were in the shadow of an older sibling, and we both struggled with what it was that God wanted us to do with the talents we'd been given. The major difference here is that Josie is a gifted mathematician, and I can barely add two and two.
Some exciting news about the books in this series. This last week, a woman from Florida telephoned Heartsong's customer service and ordered many copies of The Engineered Engagement. She contacted me about signing some copies for her, because she was planning a trip to Ireland and Scotland in a couple weeks and wanted to take copies of all the books in this series to her friends there. The Kennebrae Brides go international! Thank you, Nancy!
