The Carousel Painter by Judith Miller
Carrie loves painting the beautiful carousel horses . . . but can she stand strong against the many who don't want her to keep the job?
When Carrington Brouwer receives the enviable job of painting carousel horses for a factory in Ohio, she believes her future is secure. But after an expensive necklace disappears from the home where she's been staying, she's caught up in a search for the truth that puts her entire livelihood--and her developing relationship with the factory manager--at risk. Can she lead police to the real culprit before she loses everything?
Thanks to Bethany House Publishing for providing me with a review copy of this book.
The Carousel Painter is a great read. I found Miller's writing to be very descriptive and her characters were fascinating. I really enjoyed the look into what it might have been like to be a single woman working to support herself during that era. I also loved that the main character was not wealthy. So many historical fiction books center around the wealthy and it was nice to step away from that! This would be a great book for anyone who enjoys Christian historical fiction.
