Choices for Life

I love that Granny M lives with me.  It is an honor to be able to care for your parents.  But it is also a duty and one that is not always the easiest to do.  When I made the choice to have Granny M live with Dear Hubby and me, I knew it was to be for 15 to 20 years.  Yes, my family has a very long life span.  Granny M will turn 80 this year.  She is healthy for the most part.  The rest she is working on fixing with surgeries to keep her going.  So we are still 10+ years in the works of being a unit here.

So what is the down side?  Well Dear Hubby and I have never lived with just the two of us.  When we married, JD was in high school.  Granny M moved in just as she was getting close to graduating.  It looks like we will be in our mid 60's before we might ever have a chance to a house of our own so to speak.  You see, duty does make you change many of your decisions.

This is just the internal fight that Emmalyne is having.  She has a duty to her father.  One that binds her to caring for him in his elder years.  Tavin wishes to marry her and start their own life.  But duty is strong and Emmalyne has chose to obey that calling.  Then fate always has a twist to life.  Years later the two, Tavin and Emmalyne, are thrown together again.  The feelings are just as strong.  But is the call to duty as strong as before.  Or is there a compromise that can be made?  Now you know that life is never simple.  There is always the outside world that is pushing on us too.  Same here, desperate times and it is calling for desperate measures.

Peterson Hits the Bestseller Lists Again and Again!

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?
