Book Review - The Quarryman's Bride by Tracie Peterson

Publisher's blurb: Emmalyne Knox has always loved Tavin MacLachlan. But when tragedy strikes her family, Emmalyne's father declares she can no longer marry. Despite Tavin's pleas to defy the decision, Emmalyne refuses. In her act of obedience, she gives up the future she'd always dreamed of.

When Emmalyne's father returns to the quarry business years later, Tavin and Emmalyne meet again. And though circumstances have changed in both of their lives, they cannot deny the feelings that still exist. Can Emmalyne find a way to heal the decade-long wound that has fractured the two families...and change the hearts of those who stand in the way of true love?

My review: I wanted to like this book but it really irked me. The main cause of all the heartache in the book is one man's stubbornness and he doesn't seem to care about the lives he ruins. I also didn't like how meek the lead female is to everything happening around her. It may have been true for its' time and place, but it bothered me none the less. Not sure if I would recommend this book to others.
