Laura Woodfield used to help her father at the brickworks before the war tore everything apart. Now that her father is dead, and her mother wants to sell, Laura is determined to make sure that it goes to someone worthy, and she is willing to help them make the business work.
Ewan McKay's uncle is the one who is buying the brickworks from the Woodfields, and he wants to make sure that they are treated fairly. Ewan knows about running a brickyard but he doesn't have the money to buy the one from the Woodfields. Ewan's uncle is not a man known for following through with his promises, and Ewan doesn't want to see Laura hurt.
Will Ewan and Laura find their way in the ever changing way of life after the war?
Laura is a wonderful young woman with a big heart. Her mother wants the best for her, and thinks that she has Laura's best interests at heart.
I really liked Ewan and how he was hardworking, and really just wanted to live the American dream of working hard and prospering.
Overall, a well researched read, filled with history and drama.
