The Potter's Lady by Judith Miller

Product Details

This is a story of a family that took over a potter in the 1800's after the older brother had basically been kicked out of the brick making factory where he had been promised to be made part owner. So they bought this pottery at his sister's insistence.  Then their bid proposal were stolen by the nanny and passed on to another potter who would then underbid them and take the contracts.  And so on and so forth.

For some reason, this book just didn't hit the right nerve with me.  Something felt off about it; I did enjoy the suspense at the end of seeing if they would win this big contest and how they would figure out about the cheating going on, but something felt missing.  I think it didn't seem 1800ish enough; like the mother-in-law ran the house and had the money and there was no mention of what had happened to the father-in-law.

I did think Judith did a very good job of bringing God into the story and talking about prayer changing things and peace happening as a result of trusting in God and asking for His help.  I could learn from that a lot.

I received this book from Bethany House in order to read and write a review on it.  All opinions expressed are my own.
