From the Inside Flap
With laundry to wash, Emily dressed only in her clean chemise, hoping to remain as cool as possible for as long as possible. She began scrubbing her things with the strong lye soap. No sweet scent of roses for her clothes, for even while there remained a scent of that precious soap in the water, the lye would soon erase any trace.
"When I have a home of my own, I shall have one of those wringer washing machines," she announced while doing her best to squeeze the water from her newly washed clothes. She draped the wet things across a small line that her father had secured for her in the corner of the cabin. Given the warm Montana air, she knew they'd be dry in no time at all. Meanwhile she would wear her other skirt and one of Mother's old blouses. She had just gathered the pieces from her trunk when the cabin door opened without warning.
Clutching the skirt and blouse to her, Emily looked up to meet the gaze of the most beautiful eyes she'd ever seen. The serious but handsome face they belonged to remained fixed on her face. Emily all but forgot what she was doing. She found it impossible to speak. The stranger continued to stare as if transfixed. Who was he? Why had he come?
All at once he turned away. "Excuse me."
He called over his shoulder. "You must be Emily. Your father told me to just come on in. I'm sorry if I frightened you."
"I am . . . Emily." Her voice sounded strange in her ears. "And you are?"

From the Back Cover
There is more than gold to be found in these hills.
Emily Carver longs to have a home of her own, but instead she endures a transient existence in the gold mining camps of Montana, where her father's hopes for riches lie endlessly buried. Promises of wealth from this wild land have brought only hardship and disappointment, causing Emily to wonder if her own modest dreams will ever see the light of day.
Caeden Thibault, a young geologist working for the government, is a man trying to escape the pain of his past, and the idyllic mountains of Montana serve his purposes well. In the course of his work, he has seen more than his share of starry-eyed gold seekers. So when Emily Carver catches his attention, he is intrigued by the fact that she isn't pinning her hopes on striking it rich.
Will an unexpected discovery come between them or draw them together?
"Peterson produces a strong sense of the Wild West in this riveting story of life in the mining camps of 1890s Montana. With absorbing characters, a suspenseful plot, and foreboding tone, this new series is guaranteed to be one of her best."--Library Journal
"Peterson paints a realistic and picturesque portrait of Montana mining life...Emily and Caeden are wonderful, fleshed out characters and their stories are equally touching, and at times, heartbreaking."--RT Book Reviews
"The adventurous first book in a new series promises to deliver new insights into history and faith."--CBA Retailers+Resources

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?
If you have any interest in history or gold mines, this book is definitely for you. There is just enough suspense to keep you turning pages and just enough romance to keep the romantic at heart satisfied. This book is the first in a series of books called the Sapphire Brides. Tracie sets the story for A Treasure Concealed in beautiful Montana during the aftermath of the gold rush days.
Tracie Peterson did a wonderful job in describing gold mining life in Montana. I could picture the town, the people, the Carver’s home, and the difficulties these people faced. I really enjoyed this book. I think you will like it if you enjoy historical fiction.
**I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.**
Caeden had a father who loved himself and alcohol more than he did his family, so Caeden plans never to get romantically involved with anyone., but he finds his heart going out to Emily despite all his best efforts to prevent it. However, the Arnolds, his father’s old friends, might just change everything if the man bent on revenge against the Carvers doesn’t first.
The only mistake I found was “Kirk” used when it should have been “Taber” once. I really enjoyed parts of this story, but it should have been shortened, because other parts dragged at a slow pace. I expected more to come of the mock engagement and didn’t know if I was glad or disappointed that didn’t happen. Although enjoyable, this novel wasn’t as good as others I’ve read by Tracie Peterson. It seemed more methodical and lacked tension or spark. I gave it 4.5 stars, which rounded up to a five.
Caedon loved the travel and variety of his work as a geologist for the government. Besides, he knew that the the whole settle down with a family thing wasn't for him. Not with the father he'd been raised by!!
Neither of them could see a way to open themselves up to any kind of relationship. The outside forces were daunting -- but the inner turmoil would threaten the strongest of the strong.
I loved this book. Actually, how could you not love something by Tracy Peterson? Caedon and Emily's struggles with forgiveness and trust are skillfully portrayed. The lessons of faith are woven into the story seamlessly, moving the story along logically.
This book is pretty 'action' packed with so much going on. Includes some danger, concerns, a death in a fire (arson), etc
But more importantly, the story about a poor family filled with such love that even a wealthy stranger sees it & experiences it while finding out what he has missed all his life.
