Award-winning author Miller weaves a delightful and entertaining tale filled with suspense and drama. Written in the first person, it takes us into the world of a carousel painter in 1890 whose life is turned upside down by lies, betrayal and rejection. Miller creates characters that are engaging and places them in a setting that brings readers to the heart of human emotions.

With her father dead and very little money, Carrie accepts an invitation to stay with her friend Augusta until she can find a home and job. After securing work as a carousel painter at an all-male factory, Carrie encounters rejection, threats and envy. Knowing that she will have to prove her talent, Carrie must also find a way to reject the constant advances of Augusta's beau. It's almost her undoing when she becomes the primary suspect in the theft of family jewels. Carrie must yield her pride and trust God to help her clear her name and protect her heart.
