QuarryBride300Emmalyne 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?

This was the first Tracie Peterson book I ever read.  All I can say is why did it take me so long to find this author and her series.  Tracie Peterson is the author of more than 90 novels and she has a love of history and research that fuels the bestselling stories she writes.  I can definitely say that this will not be my last book by author Tracie Peterson.  I will be reading more of her bestselling stories.

I loved how the Tracie wrote this love story all the while keep God and His Word as the focal point throughout each character’s life.  Scripture and truthful nuggets are woven into each page which is an awesome witnessing tool.   In a world that has so much trash and garbage and bad news to read this author brings a bright light shining through with her Christian novels about life in a different era.

One thing that took me getting use to was the use of the old Scottish brogue language throughout the book by the characters.  After the first few chapters your mind adapts to this way of speaking and you learn to read it well.  That was the only thing that I found as a drawback about the novel.  Otherwise, I give it 5 stars.  This book is a must read for anyone.  Whether you have a personal relationship with God or not, whether you read historical love stories or not you will not be disappointed.
