Just so you know, I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review, but all opinions here are my own.

The Potter’s Lady is set in the 1870’s West Virginia and Pennsylvania and is the story of first generation Irish immigrants who are working to buy and build a pottery business. The main character of the story, Rose McKay, has just graduated from the Philadelphia Design School for Women, but is struggling with feeling like an outcast as a result from being ostracized at the school. Eager to make a new start and use her talent, she convinces her family to invest in a pottery business over a brickmaking business that they are more familiar with. The family must then struggle to make the business work with the help of Rylan Campbell, and young man with a past to overcome. The plot involves a developing romance between Rose McKay and two of the male characters as well as relationship struggles with extended family and friends who deliberately cause trouble for the family.
