Judith Miller's "A Potter's Lady" Review

"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?"

Judith Miller again has weaved a wonderful tale of romance and suspense.  I have always loved pottery and this story grabbed my heart.  Set in historic West Virginia in the 1870's, the tale evokes the time and difficulty of business, especially for a woman.  This book was a quick read and captivated me.  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Judith Miller's writing.  I have not read any other in this series, Refined By Love.
Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing, provided this book for my honest review, without any compensation.

Keep reading!
