Judith Miller About the Author

Judith Miller is an award-winning writer whose avid research and love for history are reflected in her bestselling novels. She is the author of the popular Daughters of Amana and Home to Amana series, which explore the closed communities of Iowa's Amana Colonies. Judy makes her home in Topeka, Kansas.


I found that I really enjoyed this book.  The author writes with a different style that makes you love the characters even though they had flaws. When characters or not perfect or not even likable. This type of writing and characters make the story seem real.  That it actually could happen. The story had characters that disliked others because of where they were from or because they thought they were the most important people in the world. This happens in todays' world

I didn't know much about the profession of Bricklaying so it was very interesting to read about this profession.  It appears the author, Ms. Miller did quite a bit of research which went into a book to make it life like. I didn't find a dull moment in the story.  The characters were described quite vividly. This is a book that would catch the attention of readers who like historical fiction and leaving this world for a while to enter another era.

Our main character, Laura Woodfield was also at her father's side at the brickyard, so when she lost her father in the Civil War and has missed him terribly.
The brickyard went up for sale and the lawyer was hoping that the Irishmen would purchase it.
Winston began courting Laura as she and Ewan are learning thee books.  She sees good things in Winston but there are also things she doesn't like.

Will Laura and Winston wed?  What will happen to the Brickyard? Will Laura perhaps fall for someone else?

The author wrote a very descriptive, historical tale with characters that, as the reader, could blend into their lives.  You could become part of their society.

I was given a complimentary copy of THE BRICKMAKER'S BRIDE from the author, Judith Miller and Litfuse Publicity Group for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
