About "The Brickmaker's Bride":
Yearning for a fresh start, Ewan McKay travels with his aunt and uncle from northern Scotland to West Virginia, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial assistance from his uncle Hugh. Hugh purchases a brickmaking operation from a Civil War widow and her daughter, but it's Ewan who gets the business up and running again. Ewan seeks help from Laura, the former owner's daughter, and he feels a connection with her, but she's being courted by another man---a lawyer with far more social clout and money than Ewan. Besides, Ewan has resolved he'll focus on making the brickmaking operation enough of a success that he can become a partner in the business and be able to afford to bring his sisters over from Scotland.
But when Hugh signs a bad business deal, all Ewan's hard work may come to naught. As his plans begin to crumble, Laura reveals something surprising. She and her mother may have a way to save the brickworks, and in turn Ewan may have another shot at winning Laura's heart.
I never thought I would find myself fascinated about brickmaking but I did find it quite interesting. It is nice to read how about a family that followed the rules of etiquette but they weren't snooty about it. This novel showed a good example of how we need to reflect God's love to others. I love reading about history and this story tells about unwed mothers, orphans, and widows after the Civil War. I have always been a Judith Miller fan and this book is a great addition to my home library. I can't wait to continue reading this Historical Series Set in West Virginia.
