The Master Craftsman by Kelli Stuart
In 1917, Alma Pihl, a master craftsman in the House of Fabergé, was charged to protect one of the greatest secrets in Russian history--an unknown Fabergé Egg that Peter Karl Fabergé secretly created to honor his divided allegiance to both the people of Russia and the Imperial tsar's family. When Alma and her husband escaped Russia for their native Finland in 1921, she took the secret with her, guarding her past connection to the Romanov family.
Three generations later, world-renowned treasure hunter Nick Laine is sick and fears the secret of the missing egg will die with him. With time running out, he entrusts the mission of retrieving the egg to his estranged daughter, Ava, who has little idea of the dangers she is about to face. As the stakes are raised, Ava is forced to declare her own allegiance--and the consequences are greater than she could have imagined.
This modern-day treasure hunt from award-winning author Kelli Stuart transports you into the opulent and treacherous world of the Russian Revolution to unearth mysteries long buried.

Kelli Stuart introduces herself.
I’m a dreamer, a wordsmith, and a lover of good fiction. I love to laugh, and spent my first six years as a blogger laughing with the internet at this crazy thing called parenthood.
I’m a novelist, with my first novel, Like a River From Its Course, releasing to rave reviews. My second book, Life Creative: Inspiration for Today’s Renaissance Mom,was co-authored with Wendy Speake, and written to inspire and encourage creative moms.
I love people and languages, and I’m a passionate advocate for orphan care and orphan prevention.
I’ve been married to Lee for nineteen years and the path has been twisty and full of life, laughter, a little heartache and more blessings than I understand how to articulate. We have five children, and have also been blessed with a heart-daughter who lives in Ukraine. We added our fifth child to the family via adoption through China in November of 2018. He is a gift to our family, and has taught us more about unconditional love and the mercies of the Lord than anyone else.
