A Treasured Concealed - A Book Review

Emily Carver lives with her family in the gold mining camps of Montana Territory.  Her father has high hopes in hitting it big, but the mining camps are not a safe place for a woman and Emily knows this.  She takes extra care to protect herself and even dresses like a man when she goes out.  Emily's mother is gravely ill and she is not ready to let her go.  She is not sure how she will ever make it without her.   All Emily wants is a real home and family and a life of stability.

Emily's father invited Caeden Thibault, a young geologist to stay with them.  Caeden has a past that he is ready to forget.  The pain of his past life is too much for him to bear and he fells that Montana is the perfect place for him to escape to.  It's not long before Emily catches his attention, he is fascinated with the fact that she has no desire to strike it rich.  When the Carver's house is burnt to the ground by a bad man, Caden feels like he must protect Emily.  Will Emily and Caeden allow God to direct their paths, heal their hearts and help them find happiness with each other?

A Treasure Concealed by Tracie Peterson is a beautifully written story that will pull you into the pages from start to finish.  I am a huge fan of historical romance books and I really enjoyed reading about the gold rush.  I loved the romantic parts of the book and that it showed a strong faith and patience in waiting on God's timing.  You'll fall in love with the characters and at the end of the book you will feel completely satisfied with the ending.  This is one of those books that leaves you thinking about the story even after it is over.
