I absolutely love how she weaves together a flowing storyline that brings the end to restoration and healing, all the while the story is stitched together with God's love, patience and forgiveness center stage.
I especially enjoyed Peterson's portrayal of the Scottish culture, which seemed to be fairly accurate and well researched. Having a Scottish friend it has given me some insight into the culture and some of the traditions.
This book is the second in the series, but found that it could be read as a stand-alone book, just as easily as a series.
I quite enjoyed reading this book and would recommend this book for all you Peterson fans. Watch for the third book in the series The Miner's Lady.

Tradition combined with a fatal tornado ended a proposed marriage as quickly as the storm death of 2 wee girls. Scot/Welch traditions evolved from faith in the Bible's words. Emmalyne could nae oppose that. What would a St. Cloud return offer 11 years later? Would Tavin be married to another?
The story tells, through Em's ma, just how devastating depression can become. Sabotage interferes with the work to complete a contract at the quarry. Union tension is high for all quarrymen's families. The nearer the final pages approach, the more intense the action and suspense.
A conflict-driven yarn. As father Luthias said after Tavin appeared to begin working side-by-side at the quarry--11 years after Luthias denied his wedding to daughter Emmalyne:
"It can bode nothin' guid."
Slight brogue dialects and historical word usage makes the 19th century period come alive.
Peterson spins another rock-solid story. My appetite was whetted for the next in the adventure series, posted as "The Miner's Lady." If you missed book one, here's a link: Icecutter's Daughter, The (Land of Shining Water).
Emmalyne and Tavin are weeks away from getting married when a tornado sweeps through St. Cloud, killing Emmalyne's younger sisters. Family tradition is that the youngest daughter remain unmarried in order to care for her parents. With her younger sisters dead, Emmalyne is left as the youngest daughter and therefore must break her engagement in order to take care of her parents. Following her parents, Emmalyne moves with them to Minneapolis. Heartbroken, Tavin leaves town as well. However, eleven years later, both Emmalyne's family and Tavin have returned to St. Cloud. Their feelings are as strong as ever but they both feel that they must deny those feelings since so many obstacles stand in their way. Amidst their resurfaced feelings Tavin works with his father at the quarry he owns. Working at the quarry, trouble arises, and Tavin and his father must find who is behind these "accidents."
The heartbreak between Emmalyne and Tavin will pull at your heartstrings. I felt my heart breaking for them as they were forced apart and even when they were reunited, they still have so much standing in their way. The Quarryman's Bride is a wonderful story about two lovers who must learn to rely on God and trust in his healing love. I fell in love with this story and I truly enjoyed the characters that Peterson brought to life.Read more ›
