PASSION

 AND

PRINCIPLE

By  Patricia McLaine

This is the story of Mary Margaret Kathleen Kelly O’Reilly, a young Pagan Catholic born with a veil (second sight) in Dingle, Ireland in 1798. This romantic historical tale begins in an Ireland still under British rule, with the oppression of Roman Catholics, and great bitterness among the Irish people, who desire most of all freedom from the British Crown. Our heroine’s life has many twists and turns, numerous triumphs and tragedies. At a young age, Maggie finds herself torn between her passion for her young smuggler and a handsome soldier of the Crown. The story is rich in the history and drama of the 1800s in Ireland, Europe and America between 1798 and 1871.

"The Irish hold a special place in the formation of America. They crossed the Atlantic with a passion for living to make a difference in their new world. Such is the story of Mary Margaret Kathleen Kelly O'Reilly, born with special powers to see beyond what others might see. She lived her life fully with conviction and knowledge of what wonders lay ahead. Her story evolves from immigrant struggles, to seeking justice for slaves and women, while raising a family full of tragedy, love, laughter and humility. It's the story of America and the people who made this country great."

A Great Romance!

 

The author of this book did an amazing job at creating a beautiful book that opens your mind to the world of Ireland. The book is a romantic tale which moves along quite quickly, and even though it is a longer book, I found that I was thoroughly intrigued enough to keep wanting to read page after page. The characters in the book were strong and especially the heroine is a character that, though she has had to overcome much, works hard to overcome this and finds love in the end. Overall, if you enjoy romance and historical fiction, you will enjoy reading this!

Author's note:  Several readers have recently told me that this is the best book they have ever read! Music to this author's ears!

 

The writer of this book has a good grasp of language and is able to write clear sentences and dialogue. The book is exhaustively researched and the writer seems aware of how people in the past would act and think. Passion and Principle has a clear sense of place and a strong setting. Mary Margaret is a well-depicted character. As the story followed her life through issues like love, death, and slavery, the novel occasionally reminded me of Gone With the Wind in its romance and epic scope.

Amazon 4/26/2013: Wonderful book!

By Katie S.

 

Patricia McLaine has outdone herself! Passion and Principle is the kind of story that grabs the reader's interest immediately and once begun, the book is impossible to put down. I found myself so intrigued by the adventures of the heroine, Maggie, and all the colorful characters and vivid descriptions of Irish life and history that hours of reading flew by without notice. Passion and Principle is a must read, and you will not be disappointed!

Facebook 12/9/2012: I'm reading Passion and Principle, almost finished. This is one of the very best books I have ever read. It is right up there with Gone With The Wind. I love the characters and the setting in Ireland in the 1800's. I hope she writes more books like this. I am totally hooked. A mini series or movie would be nice too, but you have to read the book first.          Aileen, Arkansas

Email 11/19/2012: Finished Passion and Principle. I love that book. My dad's favorite was Uncle Tom's Cabin. I thought I would be Topsy when I grew up. The rest of this book is a feast I devoured in two and a half days. I'm amazed I know the author. Thank you so much for writing this book.           Caroline, VA

Early on, Pattie McLaine had no real clue about what Destiny had in store for her—no clear remembrance of a promise made to the Universe long before she was born—a promise to try to help people again and shed Light—as she had in many other lifetimes.

Wonderful and mysterious events took place from the day that she was born−revealed within the pages of this book. To Pattie, they amounted to what seemed to be a clever, capricious and cunning scheme—if not an Absolute Cosmic Conspiracy!

On the Back Jacket:

“Through this memoir Pattie shares her life which many of us only dream about. She has traveled the world, been a confidant and advisor to diplomats, dignitaries, Hollywood stars and countless men and women from all walks of life.  She also has love, laughter and an insatiable desire to open our minds to the power of the Universe. Patricia McLaine is one extraordinary woman.”    Maggie Linton, Program Director – Sirius XM Book Radio and Host – Maggie Linton Show

"Pattie McLaine is that rare psychic who puts you in touch not just with your future but with yourself. Happily, she has seen and helped me see when even the darkest experience would lead to something I would learn from. She has been accurate about travel, love, God and money, not necessarily in that order...what more could anyone ask?"                                                            Gwen Davis, author.

“Pattie McLaine is a woman of extraordinary talent and insight.  Her very readable and engaging memoir is full of fascinating stories about her interesting and famous clientele. Even if you don't believe in the paranormal, this book is a fun read which I highly recommend.”                                           Sheila Weidenfeld

CELEBRITY CLIENTS in my memoir: Goldie Hawn, Shirley MacLaine, Peter Sellers, Sharon Gless, Anjelica Huston, Rosemary Stack, Gregory Sierra, Diane Ladd, Susan Strasberg, Alana Stewart, Michael Crichton, Ted Lange, Rona Barrett, Gwen Davis, designer Carushka, Judith Krantz, Sarah Ferguson, and many other wonderful, interesting people whether they are a celebrity or not!

Facebook: 3/14/2011: "Took Cosmic Conspiracy with me on my cruise and am hooked! Great book...I can't wait to dig back in."         Kathy, TX

Email: on Amazon: In her memoir, Pattie McLaine accomplishes the difficult feat of not only engaging the reader through the narration of her own adventures and connections with a laundry list of the rich and famous, but by helping us to understand that our own life and the choices we make will impact us well past this chapter of our existence.  Through her gift, we get to learn vicariously through stories of other people's triumphs and mistakes.  I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to think deeply and laugh at the same time!                                                                   Danielle, CA

Email: 4/4/2011: I started reading your book yesterday and couldn't put it down until I finished it. When I picked up the book it opened to chapter 7 and that is where I began reading. I have to believe you had something to do with that.  Its a great book and very easy to read. I enjoyed all of it. UFOs are always a touchy subject in the Airlines. Some scoff at the idea, but others who had sightings knew better. I was always cautious to bring up the subject, but a few ex fighter types told me of chase sequences that never got close. My experience, as I once told you, was at age 11 in Chicago. We had a clear view of a black saucer UFO flying squares around a B-36 westbound for Glenview Air Base just north of O'Hare. The pilots of the B36 never saw the object, according to the newspaper reports the next day. Two things stood out besides the ability to fly squares around the airplane: One, it was a black saucer almost as large as the airplane. Second, when it departed, it went up and out at a speed I cannot guess at today. It must have accelerated to warp speed. Black stood out because it reminded me of our spy aircraft, all painted black. It was 30 years before I spoke of the incident after being ridiculed by my classmates.                                       David, PA

Email: 4/5/2011: Read your Cosmic Conspiracy and loved every page of it.  What an interesting life, and there is obviously a whole lot more to tell.  This book should be an HBO three part movie.                                                Kathy, VA

“It’s hot outdoors because it’s summer.  It’s hot indoors as two friends search for love: One a successful actress who fulfills her sexual needs with the leading man of the moment. The other torn between her desire from the past and the stability of a good man who may hold the key to her future happiness. What do they do?  Not always what you expect. But it sure is fun as Patricia McLaine heats up the pages with lust that leaves you wanting more, during the magical Summer of Love.”

"Pattie McLaine is the queen of synchronicity.  In her hands, the Tarot becomes an extremely effective way to tap other-than-conscious realms of psychic functioning."

Richard B. Blasband, M.D.

Psychiatrist

 

 "The many psychic readings I've had with Patricia McLaine have provided me with valuable insight and guidance in every phase of my life, but my Master Reading enabled me to develop a kinder, more accepting attitude toward life and myself, making me a happier person.  I highly recommend the Master Reading to anyone interested in viewing his or her life with greater clarity and compassion."

Email 4/19/2009: Dear Pattie, I have a copy of your excellent book "The Wheel  of Destiny" and can't believe how you know all this stuff. I laid out the 22 Major Arcana cards recently in three rows of 7, 8  and 7 cards, but was at a loss as how to interpret them. Then I decided to give your Master Spread a go and found it works wonderfully. No need for special lay-out or even the intention to use Master Spread before laying the cards it seems.  

                                               Many thanks, Michael S. Correll, Sydney, Australia

 

Email 4/14/2013: "You are a fantastic writer, Pattie. I look forward to reading more of your books. THE WHEEL OF DESTINY has so much knowledge in it. I look forward to learning  a lot from your book. Thanks, Pattie."

"The characters in this story are all unforgettable. They will make you laugh and make you cry, and will live in your heart forever. Your special angel will inspire you to read this one over and over again." SUSAN SCOTT

"A glimpse of what heaven might be likepeace, serenity, all your dreams come trueand an angel to watch over you."  B. L. Birute

 "Weeks after reading THE RECYCLING OF ROSALIE, I find myself still chuckling over her antics. We'd all like to think Rosalie's experience of life after death is what really happens. A thoroughly entertaining read."     Peter Kynaston

"I want to thank you for writing your book. I loved it! I couldn't put it down. I think it should be required reading for anyone dealing with death. It was wonderful."        Lynn Kaufman

McLaine sure knows how write a unique plot - and a brilliantly clever one at that! The protagonist Rosalie is funny, very funny, charming and human. The reader gets to follow Rosalie to the other side and it is through her perspective on the other side that the story unfolds. I love this novel. A novel sui generis. - "Chestnuts In Blossom," Sweden

 REVIEW: HYSTERICAL by Joleene Naylor

How Green was My Gimlet is a three act play that centers on a psychiatrist who winds up treating a married couple--The Pillows--in weekly back to back appointments. The catch? Neither wants their partner to know the other is seeing a shrink. Nutty at opposite ends of the spectrum the two can agree on only one other thing: their choice of drink is a vodka gimlet.

But that just makes things worse.

Georgie likes hers with green cherry juice but David can't stand them that way. Is this the root of all their problems? And will poor Dr. Hildrone be an alcoholic before he's able to solve their issues? Even better does he want to fix them? With all the suicides business has been "falling off" lately. How much can he take of the zany couple before the eager to please doctor drops off the deep end himself?

Fun and witty this had me laughing out loud more than once. Great just as something to read but I can only imagine it would be even more fun for a small theater group to perform.
