About the book: The Brickmaker’s Bride
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 thoughts: So I have a soft spot for the Irish as my heritage is Irish and I love learning more. Ewan is such a wonderful man trying to bring his family over to America to be with him while battling his uncle and aunt. Will he ever become a partner in his Uncle’s brickyard? Will he find true love? I loved learning about Laura as well and her secrets. Laura sees something in Ewan that she admires and they work together to get her father’s brickyard producing as much as possible for Ewan and his Uncle.
