This is my first experience with Jan Watson but it definitely will not be my last!

Skip Rock Shallows is a small mining community in 1908 Kentucky. Lilly Gray Corbett has accepted an internship in the backwoods community that reminds her of her home in Troublesome Creek, not so very far away. She quickly learns to love the colorful people and finds herself not so sure she wants to leave. Then she meets an old acquaintance who confuses her even more as she tries to choose between him and her fiancé back in Boston. Where does her true heart lie and what will she do?

This is the kind of book that is on the very top of my favorite style of writing. As I became involved with the characters of the story I was pleasantly surprised to feel that it had a familiar kinship to Christy by Catherine Marshall. The customs of the mountain people, the hard life and trials of their existence, and the suspense of the miners dangerous jobs all blended with a satisfying love story that left me completely happy with the ending. I liked it so much that I looked up the author and was thrilled to find that this is the latest in a series that I had never read before. That is about to change as I want to go back to the beginning and see where it all began. I must say that this story was very good as a stand alone read but it is definitely worth the effort to check out the other volumes as well. Keep watching. I plan to update with reviews of the other books as I get them read.
Definitely a five star read.
