Book Review: The Quarryman's Bride, Tracie Peterson

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

From the Back:

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 Reflections:

Traci Peterson does a wonderful job as always of drawing the reader into her stories, this book is no different.

I absolutely love how she weaves together a flowing storyline that brings the end to restoration and healing, all the while the story is stitched together with God’s love, patience and forgiveness center stage.

I especially enjoyed Peterson’s portrayal of the Scottish culture, which seemed to be fairly accurate and well researched.  Having a Scottish friend it has given me some insight into the culture and some of the traditions.

This book is the second in the series, but found that it could be read as a stand-alone book, just as easily as a series.
I quite enjoyed reading this book and would recommend this book for all you Peterson fans. Watch for the third book in the series The Miner's Lady.
