The Potter’s Lady is a christian historical novel set in 1872 in West Virginia. Ms. Miller certainly did her research on the pottery making industry. A most enjoyable read, started off rather slowly but quickly picked up. The heroine, Rose McKay, was a graduate from a Ladies Design School and convinces her brother Ewan to invest in a pottery factory so she can use her talent to create unique designs. Ewan has been ousted from a family brick yard business and needs another livelihood. He leans heavily towards purchasing another brickyard, but Rose has the support of the rest of the family to purchase the pottery factory. Rylan Campbell is the right-hand man to the former owner, so Ewan keeps him on for his expertise. Rose and Rylan clash from the very beginning. She wants to make changes and he feels these changes will cause the workers to quit and they can’t afford for that to happen. Ewan cannot understand why he keeps losing bids to another pottery company whose owner happens to be courting Rose. When Rose hears about a pottery competition, she knows that this will help save their pottery business.. Rose and Rylan will need to work together to make the winning vase and plate design. If they win the competition, they will get a big contract to make dinnerware for a large hotel chain. They need this contract to save the business, but can they work together? There is fraud, theft and lying to cause them to lose the competition. The romance is a little weak in the novel, but faith is interwoven through out. Excellent writing as always in Judith Miller’s books. I received a complimentary copy of The Potter’s Lady from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review. I appreciate the opportunity to read this story and share my thoughts.
