New Releases: The Brickmaker's Bride

Book Title: The Brickmaker's Bride
Publishing Date: October 7, 2014

A little bit about the book: 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?


My Review: The Brickmaker's Bride was the first book I've read by Judith Miller and although it had the makings of a good book it didn't really appeal to me. I felt like the story was being drawn out which made me lose interest in the book. And although I did finish it I could have done without reading it. 

My Rating: ⭐⭐
Note: I received this book through NetGalley. http://netgalley.com
