Escaping her shattered past is much more difficult than she imagined.
Julia Schultz has a reputation for being a storyteller, or as others see it, a liar. But with her dark and painful past, stories are all that have kept her company throughout her life. Longing for a fresh start and a second chance to earn real trust, Julia takes a job as a Harvey Girl at the El Tovar Hotel, where she's challenged to be her true self.
Learning the trade of a master jeweler is hard work, but Christopher Miller takes pride in running his family's small shop and earning the respect of the people around him. But when he discovers that he has six weeks to buy his building from his landlord before it is sold, he must find a way to save his grandfather's legacy.
United by the discovery of a legendary treasure, Chris and Julia find hope in each other. But when Julia's past catches up with her, doubt creeps into Chris's heart. Can he really trust her and her stories?
My thoughts: Kimberley Woodhouse is one of my favorite authors and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. A GEM OF TRUTH lived up to every thought I had about reading it and I literally couldn't put the book down. I thoroughly enjoyed it. There was one unexpected twist, but otherwise it was fairly predictable. I can't wait to read book 3 and find out what happens next. If you love historical romantic suspense, heavy on the romance and on the faith message, you will love A GEM OF TRUTH. I was given a copy free and all opinions are my own.
