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.

 When Hugh and his wife decides to move to West Virginia and find a brickmaking business, Ewan McKay decides to travels with them from northern Scotland to West Virginia, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial assistance from his uncle Hugh. But Uncle Hugh wasn’t the best business man, and he had more fun in the bars drinking and gambling that he did working. So, that’s what he did, when he could keep his wife from finding out. Another thing was that Uncle Hugh never read a contract before he signed it, and he had more trouble than he bargained for when he didn’t properly read the contract he signed for the new brickyard. Of course Ewan had to deal with all of the trouble. But that wasn’t so bad because he had the lovely Laura, the former owners beautiful daughter to work with. Laura had promised to help with the book keeping since that is what she did for her dad’s business. But then Laura and Ewan couldn’t deny the attraction between the two of them, and how would his work out with Uncle Hugh?

This is the first Judith Miller book I have read in a while, and I thoroughly enjoyed every page of this story. Its not a fast pace story that keeps you on the edge of your seats, but it is a fun, relaxing, enjoyable story that you just can’t put down. I kept getting so frustrated at Hugh’s ornery wife, she was just a pain to read about, and Hugh was as well most of the time. I was hoping Ewan would end up with the brick business, but maybe that will happen in another book!?! And Ewan and Laura was just suppose to be together, no matter there social standing! I loved this story and I encourage you to pick up your copy to enjoy as well!

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
