Review: A Treasure Concealed

 

A Treasured Concealed by Tracie Peterson is a historical romance that grabs readers, takes them through an exciting story, gives them a taste of love—all while pointing to Christ, who never forsakes his beloved.

The heroine of the story, Emily, is living with her father in a mining town in Montana when Caeden, a young geologist, comes into the scene.

In this story, Peterson description of the 1890s mining town and people is interesting and compelling. I’m a huge fan of historical fiction, and Peterson did a phenomenal job in this story. In an interesting story with a fast-moving plot, I learned about mining and miners’ dreams.

Also, Peterson’s characters are strong and the plot is interesting. A Treasure Concealed is an easy read that moves quickly—I may have even finished it in a night or two.

My only complaint is perhaps a shortfall in the plot. I don’t want to spoil the book for you—because it is still worth reading—so I’ll only explain it briefly: Emily’s father is particularly protective of her in the Wild West, yet he quickly trusts Caeden, even inviting him into his home. This seemed inconsistent with his character, but I was able to get over this oddness as the rest of the book was quite compelling.

If historical Christian romance is your thing, check it out—this book is great!
