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?

The Quarryman's Bride is the second book in Tracie Peterson's Land of Shining Water series. You can read my review of her first book, The Icecutter's Daughter here. Like in the first book, this story is set in the state of Minnesota. Emmalyne Knox was looking forward to her wedding to Tavin MacLachlan that was to take place in less than two months, but tragedy had struck her family. And because this tragedy left Emmalyne as the only girl left in the household, her father broke off her engagement and moved the family from St. Cloud to Minneapolis. Emmalyne was heartbroken, but wanted to show respect for her father, so she went with the family to Minneapolis knowing that she was loosing the love of her life.
Eleven years later, Emmalyne's father uprooted the family and moved back to St. Cloud. Emmalyne was filled with dread at the possiblity of seeing Tavin and his family again. She had no idea how she could bear to be near Tavin since she knew her father would never let her marry. How will she survive and will she ever be truly filled with joy again?
Let me just start by saying that I read this book in 3 days and that is amazing for a mom with two kids! The storyline in this book took off from the beginning and raced to the end. It was really hard to put it down! I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved how the character had to deal with their issues and how their issues forced them to seek help from the only One who can help...God. I would say a majority of the characters had to deal with anger. It's easy to hold onto anger and allow it to infest our lives with bitterness not only toward another human being but also toward God. Tracie did a great job weaving the story of love throughout this book. Emmalyne showed her family, especially her father, God's love and returned good for evil. She not only showed this love in her actions, but she prayed for her father too. She was a good example of how to show Christ's love to others. If you're looking for a great series to pick up, I would highly recommend the Land of Shining Water series!
