This book follows young Laura as she is changing her whole life. Her mother is selling her late father's business and trying to marry her off to the most eligible bachelor. Enter Ewan an immigrant trying to make a new life for his family. Together they work on business slowly the build a relationship. I love how Miller really shares the character's and their thoughts and doesn't spend a large focus on the setting and clothing. She gives us just enough of the details and much more meat for the story this way. This was a sweet romance book and the Christian aspect was woven in nicely.
The Brickmaker's Bride is availabe to purchase at your local book retailers and online at stores like Amazon.
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.
