    2. I enjoyed reading this book, and one of the themes in this story was about letting go of our past and moving on, forgiveness, and giving it to God. As was also in the story where an incident occurred, where a child was missing, sometimes we forget that no matter what happens in their lives, we have to learn to let go of our children, because they do not solely belong to us while here on earth.

    3. Good clean christian historical novelI loved this continuing story of Coppers life and her children and family and friends. This series has been so enjoyable. Especially how each character loved the Lord in different ways and honored Him. I recommend this book and series as well as the author.

    4. STILL HOUSE POND by Jan Watson is an Inspirational Historical Fiction set in 1896 Troublesome Creek, Kentucky.

The plot and characters are easy to follow.It has faith, pride, survival, family, community values, midwifery, mountain people, twists, turns, family, melodrama, and trust. It brings back characters from the other Troublesome Creek books. This story actually g [...]

    6. About halfway through the book, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to rate this book: I just didn’t feel a pull towards the plot and there didn’t seem to be any direction to the story. But, persevering on, the story began to get better and, by the time I was two thirds of the way through, I didn’t need to make myself read it anymore. In my honest opinion, I think this book is a nice, somewhat adventurous, one-time read, so I am giving it 3 stars. If you like a book that is about a ty [...]

    7. Still House Pond is Book Two in the Copper Brown Series by Jan Watson. When books are in a series I like to read them in order however I wouldn’t say it’s absolutely necessary for this book because I was able to follow the story without feeling like I missed a lot of background information from the first one. I didn’t realize this series had almost six books in it! For a complete listing of titles, including the one Jan is currently working on, visit janwatson/booksmlStill House Pond conti [...]

    8. This fifth book in the Troublesome Creek series was a nice “vacation book”. Nothing too heavy, yet thoroughly enjoyable. The author provides good character development and an easy-going plot. The book summary is a bit misleading because the train scene doesn’t happen until about 2/3 of the way through the book. But thinking about the book as a whole, I think it’s as good a synopsis as any because the story mostly just meanders through the three main characters’ lives; Copper, Lilly, an [...]

    9. Jan Watson's Still House Pond was phenomenal. It was a little tricky to get into, but part of that might have been because I started it in a loud dining hall. Lol! However, once started, she threw many twists and turns at the reader. I was always wondering what would happen next.One part of this book that not everyone likes, I've learned from reading other reviews, is that fact that the chapters alternate between the three main female character: Copper (the mom), Lilly (Copper's daughter), and M [...]

    11. I really enjoyed this book, even though at first is was difficult to follow along with the many cast of characters. Cooper, who is Lily's mother, was a very interesting character, who gets into many interesting situations while delivering babies all over town. The family's faith is tested time and again through many difficult situations of Cooper's. Also, during the time that they are all searching for Lily who is feared dead in the train wreckage. During the time the family is searching for Lil [...]

    12. Personally, I found this book to be a little bit boring with not much of a story. It was quite uninteresting and lacked character development. I also found the story to be quite predictable. So, I’ll just leave you with the synopsis taken from the back cover:“Lilly Gray Corbett loves living on Troublesome Creek, but she would much rather play with her best friend than watch her little brother and the twins. Her mama, Copper, is often gone helping to birth babies, and Lilly has to stay home a [...]

    13. Lily is a young girl that loves animals and adventure. When her well-to-do aunt invites her for a months visit, she is very excited but several events take place that keep the story moving along with dramatic effect. This book was sent to me by Tyndale Publishers for review purposes (I was not required to give a positive review). When I first started reading, I felt like I was missing a part of the story so I did a quick internet search and discovered that this is part of a series and what I was [...]

    14. This book has great character development and good writing - but it read like an expanded short story. The main storyline should have been a subplot in a much bigger story. The entire book could have been one episode in a TV series. But whatever. I read it because it took place on Troublesome Creek - which is more or less where I live. I like the names she chose for her characters; they sound a lot like some of my neighbors' names.

    15. The story was gripping and real and I felt the characters were rich in details. But, I felt like I was missing something by not reading the author's first series, which ties into this book. The only BIG thing I didn't like about this book was perhaps the fact it felt like the story was rushed and too short. Overall, I'd give this a 4 1/2 star rating.

    17. I believe this was book #5 in this series that is, to me, like a grown up "Little House on the Prairie" book. Very quick read and I stuck with it because I wanted to find out what happened at the end :).

    18. 3.5 StarsA little better than book one, Sweetwater Run. books have very slow-moving plots. This one seemed to be a little more interesting from the get-go, with the last third of the book being the best. The title is a tad unusual, but reveals it's meaning toward the end.

    21. This was one of the first books I ever read on my Kindle. The characters are almost tangible and are certainly relatable. The whole series is great!

    22. It could have been a good story without the heavy religious overtones. Not my cup of tea.
