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?show more

Our customer reviews

This was an extremely difficult book for me to review. First of all, it is a historical romance, and it written by one of the my favorite Christian authors. I was enthralled with the Christian message and sound Biblical theology, and I the exceptional writing captured my mind and spirit. I was able to connect with much of the story, and I found myself actually caring about what each character was experiencing within the story. Though a sweet, clean romance, there are some realistic portions where the author deals with mental illness, union activities, and the questioning of God's goodness. The book has most of the elements to make it an outstanding story. I struggled to separate my dislike of a few of the story elements from the actual review of the book. I did not like the ending, and I wished that happy endings were not so expected in romances. I was hoping for an open-ended conclusion and possibly a sequel in order to solve the love triangle. Redemption is an part of the story, but I just felt that some of the story seemed contrived. An organic story where things don't always happen like they should would have resonated with me better. I just never liked Tavin. Gve me the doctor any day! I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent more
