MY THOUGHTS-Ah, I just love jumping into one of Tracie Peterson's lavish novels. For a great historical that is true to the smallest details and time period pieces, this is an author you want to follow for sure. Her newest story is A Beauty Refined, second in the Sapphire Brides, and a nice look at life in the rough and wonderful state of Montana.
There is a good amount of mystery that shrouds our young heroine, Pheobe Von Bergen. She is a delightful German lady who has been traveling across the United States with her father in search of priceless gems and jewels. They arrive in Helena Montana and it is here that the story actually picks up. A rugged young man, Ian Harper, comes on the scene, much to the delight or dismay of Pheobe. He is a commoner after all and not one she would normally associate with. But he also might end up being the one who carries her through the devastating event that occurs. Oh, and I can't forget little Kenny, the rambunctious and adorable boy that brings quite a bit of fun to the story. Again, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this novel, it definitely brought a piece of the past to my life.
