A Treasure Concealed by Tracie Peterson ~ Review

A Treasure Concealed (Sapphire Brides #1)
Lucie's Review:

Emily Carver is tired of not having roots, of moving camp to camp in search of the elusive gold that her father seeks.

Her father is a good man, and he loves his wife and daughter dearly.  But he feels that God has a treasure waiting for him to find, and he has dedicated his life to finding it.

When Emily's father meets Caeden Thibault, a geologist working for the government, he invites Caeden to come and stay with him and his family.

Will Emily and her family discover where true treasure can be found?

I like Emily Carver, she is a strong and capable young woman who has learned to make the best of what life has given her, and loves her parents dearly. She is very worried about her mother, Nyola, who has been ill for sometime. The Older Timers love her cooking, and are always bringing things to trade for a homecooked meal.

I loved Nyola and her faith, she didn't even let her illness dampen her spirits and trust in the Lord. She prays constantly for her husband and daughter.

I liked the way that Caeden and Emily met. Caeden is an answer to Nyola's prayers, and I liked how he was present and willing to help when strange things began happening on the Carver property. He is a kind down-to-earth man, despite his fancy upbringing and he doesn't look down on the simpler accommodations that the Carver's offer him. I admired his concern for others, and the way that he acts on his intentions once he knows what he wants.

Overall, a well done storyline,  with a full cast of many interesting characters. I liked the faith journey of both Emily and Caeden. They both have wonderful mothers who prayer for them constantly, but they learned to make their faith their own, and grow into their faith. There was plenty of action, and great characters, along with moving dialog, and after I was hooked I didn't want to put it down!
