Being a book blogger, I constantly find myself backed up with titles to review for authors and publishers, so as of lately I have been more picky about what books I accept or sign up to review. In this case, I recognized the author's name, Judith Miller, so I instantly agreed to review The Brickmaker's Bride.

Set in the 1868, the novel centers on Ewan McKay, who mmigrated from Ireland to West Virginia with his Uncle Hugh and Aunt Margaret. Uncle Hugh had bought a brickmaking operation there and wants him to help get the business up and running as smoothly as possible. Starting a new business isn't easy as the economy is still trying to recover from the Civil War, but that didn't stop from Uncle Hugh from getting a bank loan for a business that he has no clue how to run.

Ewan seeks the help, well the advice, from the former owner's daughter, Laura Woodfield. He hopes he can make the brickworks a huge success, so that his uncle has no choice, but to make him a partner. Then maybe he'll have enough cash to bring his sisters to this country. The one thing he didn't expect was to fall in love with Laura, but there is one problem - she already has a suitor, a high-paying lawyer, Winston. No matter what obstacles lie ahead of him, Ewan is determined to make the brickworks a successful business and somehow win Laura's heart.

I practically read one historical romance novel after another, so I was a little bit surprised that The Brickmaker's Bride was a breath of fresh air to the genre. With a dazzling cover and intriguing plot enriched by vivid characters and descriptions, I flew right through the pages; reading the book in just one afternoon. Overall, The Brickmaker's Bride was a delight to read and I recommend it other readers.
