    1. I received The Artisan s Wife a while back from Bethany House to read for an honest review I was excited to read this book, since it takes place in Weston, WV not too far from my own hometown I have read a good deal of historical fiction this year, and I was thrilled to find a book taking place in my own state However, I did not realize that it was the third book in a series The book could be a standalone, and it s not hard to keep up or put two and two together as you read I just might go back [...]

    5. The Artisan s Wife is a historical novel set in 1876 in West Virginia This book is the third in a series You can understand what s going on without reading the previous books, but I d recommend reading these books in order Part of this book was of a resolution to events in the first book than about Levi and Ainslee, and it spoils critical events from that first book in the process.The historical focus of this book was on the asylum and its patients Levi has a brother living there, and he provid [...]

    23. Amazing end to an inspiring trilogy This has to be my favorite trilogy by Judith Miller to date I m fairly certain that this is due to the fact that she based her locations on actual places she grew up in Additionally , Miller included historical facts on the industries themselves , as they had progressed up until the times Her characters lived up to their potential , and in the cases of those who meant ruin and disaster , I loved how they saw the light and made things right eventually.

    29. I don t usually recommend picking up a book located in the middle or at the end of a series without having read the earlier stories, but I recently did exactly that The Artisan s Wife was written by Judith Miller and published by Bethany House in 2016, as the third and final installment in the Refined by Love series Although numerous references were made to the earlier stories because each book is about a different member of the same family The Artisan s Wife still stood strong all on its own, a [...]
