I have a really lovely book to share with you called The Brickmaker's Bride written by Judith Miller that I think you will love to read if you enjoy reading period pieces, especially romantic ones!
Bestselling Author Judith Miller Debuts Historical Series Set in West Virginia.
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.My Review:
I love it when a plan comes together, don't you? Thru all of this commotion going on around Ewan's aunt and uncle and another relative, there was little chance for Laura & Ewan to get together. Another thing standing in the way was the man that Laura was seeing at the time who wanted to be a politician someday. Unfortunately, he was not a good man and didn't care how it happened, just as long as it did!
When circumstances happened and things looked dire for one of the family members, Laura & Ewan are drawn into the drama but find much greater gifts than either ever expected. This story is both heartwarming and filled with love that you will enjoy even after you have read the book.
