Book Review: Tracie Peterson’s “The Quarryman’s Bride”


“But nothing is impossible for God or with Him”

“The Quarryman’s Bride” has to be the biggest tearjerker of the year. The heartfelt novel is full of family devotion and love. The protagonist (Emmalyne) gives up her bright future and happiness as Tavin’s wife to take care of her parents following the death of her sisters.

Eleven years later, hardships continue to fall on her and her former fiancee’s family. Emmalyne’s own father has become colder as the years have passed because of his own tragic past. The story is all about turning to God to overcome numerous tragedies and obstacles that are impossible to recover from on your own.

Bring your box of Kleenex… because this story will have you weeping til the end.

Check out the official book’s synopsis below:

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?
