By Judith Miller | Bethany House | softcover | 336 pages | $13.99
The Carousel Painter is a romantic tale of a young woman’s journey to find peace despite the turmoil and injustice surrounding her. Judith Miller takes readers back to a time when the lines of class and gender are strictly drawn, and a single woman trying to support herself in a man’s world faces serious problems.
Carrie Brouwer, the only daughter of an accomplished Parisian artist, finds her life turned upside down when her father dies, leaving her nothing but two of his paintings and enough money to pay for the voyage back to America. With few options, Carrie accepts the invitation of her friend Augusta to join her family in Ohio.
Culture shock consumes Carrie, as polite society of Ohio in 1890 is worlds away from the Bohemian lifestyle she led in Paris. To make a life of her own, she convinces Augusta’s father to hire her as a painter of carousel animals in his factory. Though she struggles with prejudices and false accusations, she begins to trust that God will provide deliverance.
The Carousel Painter delivers an adventure of love, friendship and the beauty of chasing dreams.
