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?
This book had me stuck from the first chapter. The emotions that Traci causes in the reader are amazing! The tragic loss of Emmalyne's sisters has already occurred before the opening of the book, and the tragic reveal of the tradition comes soon after. From there, the reader is caught up in twist after turn, feeling Emmalyne and Tavin's pain as they yearn to be reunited, despite the barrier between them.

Most of the book seemed fairly easy to pick up, but the shocking ending had me speechless! I actually had to re-read the entire section, to make sure I did not misread the result. Unfortunately, while the ending is mostly cheerful, the small sorrowful part evokes deep emotion. This emotional read is definitely one to pick up!

I received this book free for review for a LitFuse Blog Tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
