The Quarryman's Bride

The Quarryman's Bride by Tracie Peterson. Emmalyne was engaged and soon to be married to the man she loved, Tavin. Then tragedy struck their family and two of Emmalyne's younger sisters died. The custom of their people says that the youngest daughter must remain unmarried and living at home to support her parents in their old age. Emmalyne didn't think much of the tradition as it wouldn't have effected her, that is until her younger sisters died and left her now the youngest daughter of the family and now responsible to care for them. Her father is a hard man, who has little love to give his family. No matter what Emmalyne's feelings to Travis he has decided the wedding will not happen now and she will remain with them to care for them. So Emmalyne and Travis part ways as she moves with her family to a new community. Years later they find themselves returning to the community, but surely Travis has moved on and married now right? Wrong he hasn't! There he is still available yet still out of reach to Emmalyne. 
     What a great novel! I loved it! I loved following these characters and getting to know them! You know you're reading a good book when you get carried away and find yourself getting angry at the characters to just do what they should and forget traditions! I'm pretty sure I finished this book in one day as it was one I just couldn't set down! a must read!!!
