The Quarryman's Bride: A Book Review

About The Book:

Emmalyne Knox has always loved Tavin MacLachlan. But when tragedy strikes her family, Emmalyne's father declares she can no longer marry. Despite Tavin's pleas to defy the decision, Emmalyne refuses. In her act of obedience, she gives up the future she'd always dreamed of. 

When Emmalyne's father returns to the quarry business years later, Tavin and Emmalyne meet again. And though circumstances have changed in both of their lives, they cannot deny the feelings that still exist. Can Emmalyne find a way to heal the decade-long wound that has fractured the two families...and change the hearts of those who stand in the way of true love?

My Review:

I am a huge fan of Tracie Peterson for many years now, and she did not disappoint me at all with her most recent release, The Quarryman's Bride. It is book two of the Land of Shining Water series, with book one being The Icecutter's Daughter (which I loved too!). Book Three, The Miner's Lady, will be released in August 2013, and you can bet, I will be reading it!

The Quarryman's Bride will draw you in from the very first pages, and you will fall in love with all the characters, my favorite being the main one, Emmalyne. With a great love story, and the reminder that we don't have control over our lives, as much as we think we do, it is God that guides it. It is also seen throughout the book that bitterness gets us no where. While the book can be a stand alone read, it is best read after reading book one. I look forward to reading the conclusion of the series and whatever comes after from Tracie Peterson. 

A great read that I highly recommend. 

BUY IT: You can purchase The Quarryman's Bride at your favorite bookseller from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
