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?

Emmalyne is a good daughter, and since her two sisters were killed in a horrible storm, she is then the youngest daughter and therefore suppose to put off her plans and care for her aging parents. When Tavin the man she has agreed to marry questions her decision, she says she is to obey, and honor her parents which is what the Bible says. I agree as children we are, not as a grown adult, and a true parent would not expect that. However, Emmalyne moves with her parents back to St. Cloud. The house her father purchased is more like a shack and he expects her to clean it up and ready it for the family. She is doing this out of honor and obedience, yet her father has no kind words for her at all.
It's eleven years later, and Tavin returns to St. Cloud, his dad offers him a job at the quarry, where Emmalyne's father also works. Emmalyne and Tavin's feelings are as strong as ever, yet her father continues to stand between them. When a number of accidents at the quarry resulting in death, Tavin is on the hunt to find out who is behind them.
Pros: Emmalyne's devotion to her family, regardless of her own desires. Her selflessness to care for her family was great. Not a lot of kids would do that, especially with no appreciation.
Cons: There was a lot of depression. Emmalyne's mother hardly did anything but sit in a rocker, or lay down in her room. Fenella, Tavin's sister is in her room after her husband's death. Besides that Emmalyne's father was just horrible.
