It’s been awhile since I read a book by Judith Miller so I enjoyed reading her latest novel, The Artisan’s Wife
The Artisan’s Wife is the story of Ainslee McKay who’s life changes quickly when her twin sister secretly elopes. Her sister leaves Ainslee to take over the management of a new tile works by herself.
Ainslee is not pleased about this situation but reluctantly moves to West Virginia to fulfill her obligations. When Levi Judson, an artist and designer, arrives with designs for new tiles, Ainslee starts to feel some excitement over the business – and for this kind young man.
While their love story is a sweet one, what I enjoyed most was a look inside the tile work business as well as the unexpected historical look at asylum’s of the time. Judith Miller is truly a historical fiction writer of note for the amount of history she effortlessly weaves into her books.
If you like historical fiction, check out The Artisan’s Wife – or any other by Judith Miller.
I received this book for free from Bethany House but all opinions expressed are my own.
