The Quarryman's Bride

Life was perfect. Two families soon about to become part of each other. Tavin MacLachlan and Emmalyne Knox had just a couple weeks left before their much anticipated wedding. Until tragedy struck and now instead of a wedding, Emmalyne is attending a funeral. With the death of her two younger sisters in the tornado that came to St. Cloud, the tradition of remaining single and caring for her parents now falls on her shoulders. With that comes the end of all the dreams that Emmalyne and Tavin had for their future. There will be no changing her father's opinion.

Now eleven years later, fate is about to intervene. Emmalyne's father returns the family to St. Cloud to being work at the quarry owned now by the MacLachlan family. He is offered a job and a home in exchange for moving back to St. Cloud, something Emmalyne never expected would happen. She wonders if Tavin has married and started a family of her own. She realizes that her future is now sealed with her family's long standing tradition of the third daughter carrying for the parents until they die and she knows there is nothing outside of a faithful prayer to God that anything might ever change. She has had her hands full in caring for her mother who seems lost in sadness after the loss of her daughters so many years ago. Is there a way to help her her mother or will she sit back and watch her fall deeper into depression?

The last thing Tavin expected upon his return to St. Cloud was to be offered a job by his father upon his help completing their contract to fulfill a large quarry order. It will give him the independence he desires and enable him to be close to his family now that his sister Fenella is but a shell of her former self since losing her husband in a quarry accident. She must now remain locked in her room for fear of her hurting herself or her two young boys. Tavin's strength will be tested in ways he never imagined now that he has returned home. His greatest test will be how he will react when coming face to face with Emmalyne again.

I received The Quarryman's Bride by Tracie Peterson compliments of Bethany House Publishers and Litfuse Publicity  for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation for a favorable review. This is truly a story about forgiveness, honor and restoration, not only for Tavin and Emmalyne who have both put their faith aside believing a truly loving God isn't capable of hurting those who love Him. It really does tell the story of why it seems that God allows bad things to happen to good people. There is hope and a restoration of faith through the diligence of prayer beginning with Emmalyne who feels that somehow God is still in the midst of everything she is going through and only through relying on Him will anything change in her family. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and look forward in anticipation of the next novel in the Land Of Shining Waters Series. The Quarryman's Bride is Book 2, with The Icecutter's Daughter being the first.
