The Carousel Painter

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?

Judith Miller is an award-winning author whose avid research and love for history are reflected in her novels, two of which have placed in the CBA top ten lists. In addition to her writing, Judy is a certified legal assistant. Judy and her husband make their home in Topeka, Kansas. Visit her Web site at www.judithmccoymiller.com.

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.
