When her husband, Adolph, dies suddenly, Clara Vesper is stunned. Not grief-stricken, as their marriage had never been a love match, but staggered by what might become of her and her children. For years she designed the sapphire jewelry that made her husband's company a fortune, but she has little money in her own name and soon discovers that she has inherited nothing. Fearing for the welfare of her two small children, she decides to take them to her aunt and uncle's ranch in Montana, the only place she has ever been happy.
But much has changed since she last visited the Montana ranch, both for Clara and for those she was forced to leave behind. And when dangerous secrets from her late husband's past threaten everyone she loves, Clara must fight to remain where she can fulfill her dreams.

What a blessing to have read this novel and I do say novel because it is much more than just a story. It is a story of grace, restoration, and honor. Clara was abiding in her Mothers wishes by marrying a man she didn't love - a man who was older and ugly on the inside - she was used by him - and I wont tell you how - you will have to read the book ;) now - her husband dies and she finds out that he left her and their children penniless from gambling - so instead of staying around she moves to Montana - where her Aunt/Uncle live - and a certain someone lives - a very dapper man named - someone from her past - they were abounding in love in their past BUT there are things in his past - and again I will not tell you what it is - you need to get this book because it is incredible - things happen to him - so What happens to Curtis? Will her Mom arrange another marriage? Will anything happen with her and Curtis? What happened in Curtis's past and how does it effect the present? What does the villain in this novel want?

- Third book in series! by Kristina Anderson, The Avid Reader on 9/30/2016
A Love Transformed by Tracie Peterson is the third book in the Sapphire Brides series. Clara Vesper lives with her husband, Adolph is New York City in April of 1917. Clara’s was an arranged marriage by her mother. Adolph and Clara have been married twelve years when she receives word that he was murdered in an alley. She is told very dispassionately by her husband’s secretary, Jack Brindleson. Otto Vesper, Adolph’s twin brother, comes around and tells Clara that Adolph was in serious debt. That the home and its furnishing are all owned by Otto. He assures her that he will continue to take care of her (I’m sure he has a plan). Otto and Adolph owned a jewelry company. Adolph was known as the person who designed their beautiful jewelry that utilizes Yogo sapphires from Montana. Clara is the actual designer. Clara is worried that once her mother finds out she is a widow, she will swoop in and arrange another loveless marriage (she’s right). Clara begins making plans for herself and her children (twins: Hunter and Maddy). Clara wishes to return to Montana to her Aunt Madeline and Uncle Paul. She is also hoping to reconnect with Curtis Billingham, her one true love. But will Otto and her mother let her get away that easily. Otto needs Clara for her design talent and he may not have been completely truthful with her about a few matters. Clara’s mother has her own motives. Will Clara be able to find happiness in Montana?
A Love Transformed is an easy novel to read, but it is extremely predictable. It is easy to predict how the story will play out once we are introduced to the characters. The book contains good writing, but I just wanted more. This novel can be read without having enjoyed the previous books in the series. I found Clara to be extremely naïve. She took what she was told at face value. Considering her age and position in society, she should have been a little savvier (at least double check what she was told by Otto). I also thought that since fourteen years have passed since she last saw Curtis, her love would not be as deep or emotional. First love is sweet, but usually not lasting. Overall, A Love Transformed is a sweet book, but not my favorite in the series. I give A Love Transformed 3.5 out of 5 stars (it was okay). This will not stop me from enjoying books by Tracie Peterson in the future.
I received a complimentary copy of the novel in exchange for an honest review. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
- A Forever Love by Noreen on 9/8/2016
I have loved Tracie Peterson's books and writing for years. This book met all my expectations and more! It was intriguing, suspenseful and the characters deep. I loved each twist and turn and couldn't wait to get to the end to see what would happen. I found it delightful that it not only took in Montana, but also the treachery of some during World War I.
I was provided this book by Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing, for my honest review. I received no compensation. Thank you to Bethany House for such a great blogger program. If this books sounds intriguing, you won't be disappointed.
