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 and calls off the wedding less than two months away, 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?

Good book...I thought it was a little lengthy, but I liked the ending!

Peterson WAS one of my favorite authors, in fact she was one of the first authors I began to read when I discovered christian fiction. I read so many of her books until they started to get highly repetitive. Peterson is releasing too many books, her books are become stale and highly predictable. Perhaps if she wrote less books, researched more and created more depth and original stories I can stomach her again. Everytime I start a new book by her, I have to fast forward it because i already know what is going to happen next.

This became one of my favorite books. I loved it very much and the character themselves were astonishing. I recommend everyone reading this book. It is very inspiring and heart changing.

This book is a deep, gritty story of a girl torn between love and duty to her parents. When she makes the choice to do her duty, she has only a life of servitude ahead of her. She makes the best of things and her faith in God is what is sustaining her - that and not thinking of what might have been. But what will happen when Emmalyne and Tavin are suddenly living near each other?

For Tavin's part, he has to work through the bitterness and hate that has overtaken him and learn to forgive those who have wronged him before he can hope to find peace. The author did a good job of this without either making it seem trite or making him into a horrid character no one could like or identify with.

This is the second book in the Land of Shining Water's Series. They are stand alone stories so they don't need to be read in any particular order.
