The Sapphire Brides Series first book, by Tracie Peterson, was a great read that had me not wanting to put the book down! In A Treasure Concealed Emily Carver has spent her life hiding herself from others as she moves from mining town to mining town with her father and mother. She longs for a home of her own, with a family that is not constantly relocating. Although she has this dream, she feels it’s her responsibility to care for her ill mother and her father, who is always searching for the wealth he feels the Lord has in store for him. Emily’s life is soon changed as Caeden Thibault moves to her community. Caeden is a government employee who is all too happy to leave his life in New York and travel to Montana.
As you can imagine, some romance, mystery, and drama is within the pages of A Treasure Concealed. I really enjoyed the characters in the book, and the tight-knit community they created. Everyone seemed to look out for one another, which I guess was a necessity during that time-period. I also liked seeing the relationship develop between Caeden and Emily, as we learned more about Caeden’s past. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series!!
