Miller's ... attention to historical detail and her convincing heroine make this an enjoyable novel for lovers of historical romances and inspirational women's fiction. --Library Journal
"Judith Miller's The Carousel Painter is a delightful read about a spunky young woman who has a lot to learn about herself and the world around her. Although she is thrilled with her new job, the men in the factory do not welcome a woman worker, and Carrie finds her job and her new lifestyle to be more of a challenge than she can handle alone. To add to these difficulties, expensive items are stolen from the Galloways, and Carrie is a prime suspect. Carrie must learn to swallow her pride and trust God to handle the outcome.... The Carousel Painter is a story filled with romance, mystery, and historical detail. I recommend it, and I look forward to reading more books by Judith Miller." --5 Minutes for Mom

This was my first novel by Judith Miller. This one has been in my TBR pile since it came out (just never had the opportunity to get it until now). I was a little disappointed because I had built it up so much just by the cover and the idea of a woman working in a man's world before it was acceptable. On the positive, I loved the names of the characters and I loved seeing the relationships develop and evolve through the entire book. However, I did not like Carrington or Augusta. Neither of them seemed real, but I did like the evolution of their friendship. Josef was my favorite character. Seeing his care and devotion to the carousel factory and then to Carrington was beautifully done.
The Galloways were a family. Caught up in showing how very good ad wealthy they were to the people around them.
Tyson Farnsworth is something that you will have to read about. He is the mystery.
Any age could read this book. I even recommend it for young readers.
