Book Review: The Quarrymen's Bride

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

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?

My Opinion

One of my first favorite Christian authors was Tracie Peterson! I read every Heirs of Montana and Alaskan Quest book I could find in my local libraries and her name instantly became synonymous with great books!

So you can imagine how excited I was to see that she had a new book out in the Land of Shining Waters series: The Quarrymen's Bride. You don't have to read them in order but you will want to read the Icecutter's Daughter!

There is so much drama, emotion, loyalty to family and love all twisted into a really unique love story. It is definitely not the traditional love story and it gives a great look at family dynamics and historical events in the late 1800's. It is really well written and made me want to read on to cheer for their love and hope for a reunion!

But most of all, I love that the book is set in Minnesota, my home state! I love when I can really relate with the character's setting, weather, and what they are going with in relation to their natural environment!
