The Brickmaker's Bride Review!!!

The Brickmaker's Bride by Judith Miller

Book Description:
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 Opinion:
A nice easy, read for me personally, and I really enjoyed it! It flows along in a nice steady pace, holds great twists, and fabulous characters! There were a few things that I felt didn't wrap up and were kind of left up in the air, but I hope they will be concluded as the series goes on. :) I for one can't wait for more with some of my favorite characters as the leads! One of the things that I especially enjoyed was the process of the brick making! I always love to learn how things like this were done, and I especially love it when the author writes about them in enough detail that I can picture the step by step process. Judith does this beautifully! A sweet story, with fabulous characters and interesting settings. I don't think you can go wrong! :) There's times when my blood would boil along with the main characters and I really love how the story shows God's timing and ours are not always the same! :) I really enjoyed the spiritual lessons and messages and though I've said this above I really LOVED these characters! Overall this is a good book, with a sweet story, and I highly recommend it! :)
