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.

Book review: Tracie Peterson is a very gifted writer. She has the unique ability to take her readers on an amazing journey of fun and adventure. I’ve had the pleasure of reading many of Tracie’s books and have never been disappointed. She crafts stories in different settings, varying characters, and an assortment of plots, and yet, she has the uncanny ability to write a wonderful story every time.
A Beauty Refined was a true pleasure to read. Tracie not only takes us on an adventure but weaves God’s gift of salvation into the fabric of this lovely story. I also enjoyed learning a little about how beautiful stones are mined and refined.
