The latest book in the Land of Shining Waters series.
Peterson Hits the Bestseller Lists Again and Again!
Emmalyne Knox and Tavin MacLachlan were destined to be together…until the tragic deaths of Emmalyne’s youngest sisters. Family tradition mandates that the youngest daughter should remain single to care for her parents in their old age, and now that daughter is Emmalyne. Her father unyielding, Emmalyne surrenders to her duty, heartbroken. Tavin leaves town, equally devastated.
Years later, Emmalyne’s family moves, and she and Tavin meet again. Their feelings for each other are as strong as ever, but their painful past and Emmalyne’s father still stand between them. Soon both families are in the midst of the growing conflict rising between the workers at the granite quarry that Tavin’s father owns and operates. When a series of near-fatal accidents occur, Tavin must figure out who is behind the attacks before someone gets killed.
Bound by obligation, yet yearning for a future together, can Emmalyne and Tavin dare to dream that God could heal a decade-long wound and change the hearts of those who would stand in the way of true love?
My take on this book:
I have been a fan of Tracie Peterson's for years because I know whenever I pick up one of her stories I am going to find an adventure and meet characters that will stick with me. With "The Quarryman's Bride" I found myself finding both those things and more. I loved the setting and timeframe of the story, but more than that I found myself caring about what would happen to the characters.The character of Emmalyne did what was expected of her and that was to give up Tavin, the man that she loved, even if it broke her heart. When their lives intersect again eleven years later one couldn't help but hope that they might finally get what their hearts had always wanted. Can they overcome the hurt of the past and allow God to lead them to their future? I needed to know the answer to that question and that's exactly what kept me turning the pages. Ms.Peterson provides a few life lessons as this story unfolds, such as how anger and hurt can eat away at someone, but also how God often has a greater plan in store. While this book is the second in the Land of the Shining Water series it can be read as a stand alone work. Fans of very well written historical, inspirational romance will certainly enjoy reading this one.
