The Quarryman's Bride by Tracie Peterson ~ Review & Litfuse Tour

The Quarryman's Bride (Land of Shining Water, #2)Lucie's Review:

After her two siblings are swept away by a tornado, Emmalyne is forced to stay home and take care of her mother, and forbidden from ever marrying. 

This book started out on a such a sad note, which made it a bit hard to get into but as I kept reading rays of hope began to shine I realized how much I truly enjoyed this book. Emmalyne was such a strong character, and took what her father threw at her with strength, faith, and courage.

I really liked how there were so many characters, with both Tavin and Emmalyne's large families. I also really liked the doctor, and thought that he was a kind man.

There was a lot going on and I loved how complex the families were and I really got a feel for the conflicts that were going on. There was the cutest 4 year old, named Gunnar who I just adored!

I loved the history woven into this tale and the many dynamics that really came together to make such a touching story.

Overall a touching story, with well characterized families and plenty going one with great details. I loved how it all came together and I would happily recommend this book to others!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

About The Quarryman's Bride: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?
