I recently hopped on a blog tour for Tracie Peterson's new book, "The Quarryman's Bride". I have read several of Peterson's books in the past and I was excited to read this one. I have never been disappointed with her as an author. When I began this book, I'll admit I was a little nervous. I really am not a huge fan of historical fiction and didn't realize that's what I was getting into. I should have known better - Tracie Peterson can make anything intriguing!
The story follows a young woman and man whose engagement was abruptly broken, and they accidentally reunite eleven years later. Obviously there is a lot of pain, hurt, and awkwardness between them. The story shows how they repair their relationship, but Peterson intertwines a mystery in the story, as well as some great examples of how Christ would have us forgive and love each other. She isn't over-the-top or corny, as many romance novels can be.
I did enjoy this book. I see now that it is the second book in a series. I never would have guessed that, but I'd be willing to read the first one now. If you love a good historical Christian romance, this is a book for you!
Thank you to Bethany House and Litfuse Publicity Group for the chance to review this book.
