This was a fascinating story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! The Carousel Painter by Judith Miller is a delightful, historical romance, filled with beauty and grace. I was easily drawn in by the characters, and really felt myself pulling for the protagonist, Carrie, who went into no-woman’s-land to support herself, in a carousel factory where women did not work.
There were plenty of spiritual lessons and Scripture, but it was never preachy. It moved along at a nice pace and was difficult to put down. I really enjoyed the glimpse into the art of carousel making – especially for that era. The Carousel Painter is fun, mysterious and romantic, but it is also deep and heartfelt. I give it a high recommendation!
