The Brickmaker’s Bride is the first book I have read by Judith Miller but it will not be the last!
Judith Miller has a way with words that draws you right into the story and I don’t mind telling you that I was not at all certain I would enjoy this book.
I’m so glad my fears were unfounded!
I was intrigued immediately. I was charmed by the honest Ewan and inspired by the fiery Laura.
Together, they weave a story that I never would have expected.
Judith Miller has written a story that not many others would have even thought of!
She has taken a commonplace business and used it to show us how the Civil War affected an entire community.
And what a GREAT job she has done with it!
I only recently discovered my love of Civil War fiction and I am excited to add Judith Miller’s book to my growing collection! And I hope to find even more of hers to add as well!
Don’t miss this book! It’s a wonderful story with delightful characters who have a strong faith in God that clearly drives their lives!
I’m so thrilled to find so many wonderful new books about this era and others being published by Christian publishing companies.
Here is a bit more about the book from Bethany House Publishers:
In the clay-rich hills of the newly founded state of West Virginia, two families tentatively come together to rebuild a war-torn brickmaking business.
Ewan McKay has immigrated to West Virginia with his aunt and uncle, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial help. Uncle Hugh purchases a brickmaking operation from a Civil War widow and her daughter, and it’s Ewan’s job to get the company up and running again.
Ewan seeks help from Laura, the former owner’s daughter, and he quickly feels a connection with her, but she’s being courted by another man–a lawyer with far more social clout and money than Ewan. Resolving that he’ll make the brickworks enough of a success that he can become a partner in the business and be able to afford to bring his sisters over from Ireland, Ewan pours all his energy into the new job.
But when Hugh signs a bad business deal, all Ewan’s hard work is put in jeopardy. As his hopes for the future crumble, Laura reveals something surprising. Can she help him save the brickworks, and will Ewan finally get a shot at winning her heart?
