The Artisan's Wife
I love historical novels, and I have greatly enjoyed many of Judith Miller's books, so I was thrilled at the chance to read "The Artisan's Wife". As a twin I really felt like i was able to emphasize with the main character Ainslee as she struggled to find her place and her identity apart from her sister.
After her sister running off to get married, Ainslee finds herself responsible for overseeing the tileworks that their family purchased. She is hesitant to jump into this adventure she was supposed to share with her twin, but with deep reservations she travels down to establish herself and prays that her brother can find a quick buyer. Unexpectedly Ainslee finds herself enjoying her work at the company, and more so the work she's able to do at the asylum located in the same town. As Ainslee settles in she begins to make friends and develop bonds with those around her.
I just really enjoyed reading "The Artisan's wife", the book was well thought out, and there was a real depth to the characters that you don't often experience in novels. I would highly recommend it!!
