A Love Transformed By: Tracie Peterson

Back of the Book

When Clara Vesper's husband, Adolph, dies suddenly, Clara is stunned--but not grief-stricken. Her marriage to Adolph had been arranged, their primary interaction revolving around the sapphire jewelry Clara designed and Adolph produced and sold. Widowed and penniless, with two small children, Clara decides to return to her aunt and uncle's ranch in Montana, the only place she has ever been happy.

Curtis Billingham, injured in a sapphire mine collapse, is recuperating at the ranch of his friends, Paul and Madeline Sersland. But when the Serslands' niece returns from New York City, Curtis curses both his broken body and his broken past. Clara, the love of his life, has come back to him, but he is no longer worthy of her love.

Clara's brother-in-law Otto Vesper, Adolph's business partner, fears that the loss of Clara's design skills will doom the company's prospects. Following her to Montana, Otto is prepared to do whatever it takes to get Clara to return with him to New York. 

As Clara fights for love and freedom, a dangerous secret in her late husband's life comes to light, threatening everyone she loves.

My Thoughts

Peterson's novels have always captivated me and A Love Transformed is no exception.   Clara is a spunky character who seems to fit in where ever she goes, while Curtis fears his past bad choices could damage her reputation.  The plot is intriguing, inventive, and looks at a unique time in history rarely discussed.  While the romance was wonderful, I must mention how perfectly the villain of the story keeps you on your toes to the very end. A Love Transformed is the final novel in the Sapphire Brides series, all the novels are worth reading but they aren't connected so this one could easily be a stand alone novel.

I was given this book free from Bethany House Publishing fro my honest review.
