About the book:
A Beauty Refined (Bethany House, July 2016)
What does it take to reveal the true beauty of a hidden gem?
Phoebe Von Bergen, the daughter of a German count, is excited to visit America for the first time while her father purchases sapphires in Helena, Montana. Little does she know, however, that her father's intentions---both for her and the gemstones---are not what she thinks.
Ian Harper, a lapidary working in Helena, finds the dignified young woman staying at the Broadwater Hotel more than a little intriguing. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie---a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.
Meeting Ian has changed everything for Phoebe, and she begins to consider staying in America, regardless of her father's plans. But she may not be prepared for the unexpected danger that results when her family's deception begins to unravel.

About the author:
Tracie Peterson is the bestselling, award-winning author of more than one hundred books. Tracie also teaches writing workshops at a variety of conferences on subjects such as inspirational romance and historical research. She and her family live in Montana.
"A Beauty Refined" is the second Sapphire Brides novel from Tracie Peterson and it is an intriguing novel with a beautiful cover. Tracie does an incredible job with bringing the setting and time period to life with the historical details and vivid descriptions. It makes me want to go back in time and take a trip out west. Phoebe is a great main character as she is one whom I immediately could empathize with and I loved the strength she possesses and her interactions with the other characters. This book is filled with hope, secrets, the intricacy of families and having faith. I highly recommend reading book 1 in the series first even though this is a stand-alone novel. If you enjoy historical fiction, I recommend this book - it is a perfect summer read!
