Emmalyne Knox had her life set before her. She was set to marry Tavain MacLachlan a neighbor’s son and her one true love until a tornado hit her town. She, her brother and parents lost her two sisters in the tornado. That one event changed her and Tavin’s life forever. Her father decided that her place was to take care of her parents instead of honoring her promise to Tavin. Emmalyne decided that she need to honor her parents going along with the commandment honor thy father and mother. Ten years later, her family comes back to town and the fight for her feelings begin.
I have to say that I am a fan of Tracie Peterson. Her stories always show God’s love and that even though we don’t always understand the journey we take, God has a plan for each of us. Tracie Peterson does not disappoint her fans in this book. The story unfolds with conflict between Tavin’s father and the Union and Emmalyne’s father who works for Tavin’s father. Through a variety of conflicts both families learn about forgiveness, love and the power of prayer. The character’s are revealed and written where you care about each of them. The story is well-paced and kept this reader wanting to read to find out if Emmalyne and Tavin would find each other.
