Literary Addicts Weekly Meme: I Love Historical Fiction

We've decided to change the Literary Addicts Weekly Meme going forward. Instead of having different topics each week, we're going to ask the same question every week: What are you currently reading? By making the question a little bit easier, we're hoping that more of you will participate. Plus, this is a great way to showcase a wide variety of books!

This week, I'm reading a book in one of my favorite genres: historical fiction. I will be sharing my full review of this book later this month, but I will just say right now that I am really enjoying it!

The Brickmaker's Bride
by Judith Miller
About this book:
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.
