Oh, we have another great story written by Tracie Peterson called The Quarryman's Bride! I love the way she writes and especially the different styles of romance. I love mixing up the where and who because once you do the same type over and over again, it becomes boring and that is one thing that Tracie Peterson is not!
Excerpt from the back of her book:
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?Okay, I know things were different back then, but if I had been there, I would not have let someone tell me what to do. Have always been that way and yes I made some mistakes but I guess if you don't, you will never grow or learn to handle yourself.
Because of that fierce independence, I learned to support myself by myself and with no other help coming in. I raised my daughter and never had to take anyone's crap or telling me what to do. I may not have had the best love life and sometimes not any at all for long periods but I learned to be alone and not mind. I learned several crafts and made things for my aunts and grandma.
I learned I loved to read and that is why I review books now. So, I don't think I could have been that person back then, even with their constraints, I would have found a way. Or at least tried. Not just give up on someone I love because someone said no. You got to fight for love, it does not come easy and if you think it does, you will be in for a rude awakening. Anything that comes without any hard work will sift thru your hands like sands in a hourglass.
