A Treasured Concealed by Tracie Peterson review
Once again, Tracie Peterson has shown me why I love her books. Tracie weaves a story of historical fiction, rich with developed characters and bound with faith. She has accurately portrayed the struggles of gold miners lives as well as the cost to their families. This story in the first in Sapphire Brides and set in Montana in the late 1800's.
Here is the synopsis from the authors website:
"Emily Carver wants a home where she can put down roots instead of
following her gold-hungry father from one mining camp to another. She
also longs for tenderness and love, both of which are missing in her
life. Yet when she realizes she’s losing her heart to the intriguing new
man in camp, she fiercely fights her feelings, afraid that love will
only result in disappointment and heartache.
Caeden Thibault, a young geologist, comes to Montana to catalog
minerals indigenous to the state. He’s a serious and guarded young man
trying to escape the pain of his past. He has avoided all romantic
entanglements, fearing he might become like his abusive father. But
something about Emily Carver has caught his attention, something he
never expected. . . .
Will these two broken souls allow God to bring healing and hope to their hurting hearts?"
I would rate this book a diamond rating and I can't wait to her next book in the series.
I was provided this book free of charge, from Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing, for my honest review. If you enjoy historical fiction, you will definitely want to get a hold of this book.
