The Potter’s Lady by Judith Miller

The Potter's Lady

This Book was supplied to me by Bethany House Publishers for a review in return.

Book Description

When Rose McKay convinces her brother, Ewan, to invest in a pottery business, she’s determined to assist him in making the venture a success. Having just graduated from the Philadelphia School of Design for Women, she believes she can design pieces that will sell well. In her efforts to help the pottery flourish, Rose reconnects with Joshua Harkness, who oversees his own family’s pottery works in a nearby town.

Rylan Campbell has never liked change, but the new owners of the pottery seem to be the decent sort. He just wishes Rose wouldn’t insist on cleaning and moving everything. But when McKay Pottery starts losing business to the Harkness company, Rylan realizes Joshua might be taking advantage of Rose.

Then Franklin Hotels announces a design contest. Winning the Franklin contract would be exactly the boost McKay Pottery needs, so Rose and Rylan work closely together to create something magnificent. With Joshua’s company as their main competition, can Rylan convince Rose her trust in Joshua may be misplaced?

My Review

This Book is such a GREAT book.  I started reading it and I literally didn’t want to put it down.

This book is about Rose McKay and takes place in the 1870’s in West Virginia.  She went to school at the Philadelphia Design School for Women and she is so ready to go home to West Virginia.  When her brother picks her up from school, she can hardly contain herself.  On their way home, Rose’s brother Ewan, decides to stop off at a Pottery which is for sale.  So, they look over the pottery and Rose thinks this is a GREAT business.  Ewan really wants to buy the brickyard, where his experience is but in the end, he gives in.

As the story goes, Rose’s good friend, Joshua owns a pottery in another town, but his heart is all about making money and that is it.  Rose cares about the women and children working and she thinks that is all wrong and she is so right.  The children need education.

As the story goes, Rose and another employee, Rylan Campbell become really good friends.  He cares about the company as Rose does so that is a good combination.

This story is really good, and I don’t want to say anything else or I will ruin the story for you.  I know you will enjoy the story.

Thank you, Judith Miller for giving us such a GREAT story.
