Set in 1970's Dublin and present day Ireland, Jessica Goodwin is finding out more about her mother in her final days then she ever knew throughout her lifetime. 
When Jessica Goodwin is asked by her dying mother to read her diaries to her, Jessica duly obliges and is slowly drawn in to a world of anguish, betrayal, the supernatural and redemption. She dismisses her mother's writings as fiction until the truth becomes undeniable and the conclusion inevitable. 
The Embrace brings a dying mother and her daughter together for the final time as Jessica reads Evelyn entries from Evelyn's diaries as secrets, betrayal, love and romance are laid bare against a background of poverty, illness and terrorism.
