Emmalyne Knox has always loved Tavin MacLachlan. But when tragedy strikes her family, Emmalyne’s father declares she can no longer marry. Despite Tavin’s pleas to defy the decision, Emmalyne refuses. In her act of obedience, she gives up the future she’d always dreamed of.

When Emmalyne’s father returns to the quarry business years later, Tavin and Emmalyne meet again. And though circumstances have changed in both of their lives, they cannot deny the feelings that still exist. Can Emmalyne find a way to heal the decade-long wound that has fractured the two families…and change the hearts of those who stand in the way of true love?

My Thoughts:

Though I was expecting this book to be of a continuation of the first one, The Icecutter’s Daughter, I still enjoyed it as a stand-alone book in the series. It would have been nice though is the previous characters would have been mentioned even just in passing. That was the only problem I had while reading this book.

Tracie Peterson is an accomplished author whose books are encouraging and inspirational to young women, at least to me they are. I have been reading her books for a number of years and have come to basically love almost all of her books.

I hope you decide to read this book and the rest of the series for yourself. The women used in these series are just like us. They have they’re want and needs, but, most of all they had the same Savior then as the One we have today.

Other books in this series:
1. The Icecutter’s Daughter
