Cover photograph of woman taken by Stephen Vosloo. Thank you, Carlton Hughes. I have the greatest respect for the men and women who mine the coal that provides comfort and ease for millions of others.

After a few background details, I remembered previous books by Watson. Skip Rock Shallows can easily be read as a standalong piece or a part of the original saga of Troublesome Creek.

Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). After a few background details, I remembered previous books by Watson.

Lilly Gray Corbett has just graduated from medical school and decided to accept an internship in the coal camp of Skip Rock, Kentucky. Her beau, Paul, is doing his residency in Boston and can't understand why Lilly would choose to work in a backwater town. But having grown up in the mountains, Lilly is drawn to the stubborn, superstitious people she encounters in Skip Rock-a town where people live hard and die harder and where women know their place.

Watson, Jan. Paul Hamilton asked as he held one elegant hand over his nearly empty coffee cup. Lilly shook her head the tiniest bit, hoping Paul would catch the signal and Myrtie James would not. Of course he di. .n’t understand the significance of the donkey or the test she’d passed at the celebration last evening. So giddy with delight at him surprising her there, she hadn’t thought to explain. It was difficult enough to justify to him why she hadn’t known he was coming or why she’d let his letter become mouse fodder and why she was living in a shack in back of a shack

Her books usually center on mountain folk with their Skip Rock Shallows is the third book in Jan Watson’s series, COPPER BROWN. This one was about Copper’s grown daughter, Lilly, and her journey to finding her true dreams. Do they lie in her fiancé, Paul, or the mysterious blue-eyed stranger she feels she knows somehow?

Talk about a book I was not able to put down, and this one would be in the top five.

The cover portrays a young lady who seems to have or need all the comforts of home. Which in this era may not have been much more than most. But the harshness she is in for may soon be more than Lilly Gray Corbett is willing to handle.

I loved the fact that this book is set in a coal camp in Kentucky. Why you may say. I was raised in and around coal towns in West Virginia. My family has been from coal minors as far back as I could tell you. So some of the backwater, stubborn, superstitious, Man driven town either grows on you or not. I mean not only men but the children and women are just the same way. Outsiders sometimes are not welcomed.

With all that being said, after Lilly proves herself in several different ways, will she finally be excepted or just tolerated for a lack of a better word. You will have to read for yourself.

So for the reasons above I will be giving (and if I could it would be higher), a big Breath of Life Rating of:

Five Clock Rating!!

Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.

Dr Lilly Gray Corbett is sent to a small coal mining town to replace the local doctor in 1908. She faces the prejudice against female practitioners prevalent then. Shortly after her arrival she has to assist in rescuing a young man from a rock fall in the coal mine. She experiences conditions underground, the loyalty of the miners to their co-workers and the fears of their loved ones above ground. The greed and lack of compassion of the directors of the mining company make one wonder if there has been any change of attitude now.
A doctor working in a hospital setting is able to refer a patient. He or she can hide behind the professional barrier of doctor/patient relationship and avoid becoming emotionally involved. In the community this is different. Improvisation is required and for any medical person the community are part of one's team. Dr Lilly slowly becomes accepted. She has a love of nature and sense of humour which offset the stark conditions underground. This is a sensitive and sincere story.

Set in Kentucky with the main story revolving around the mining industry. The female main character being a doctor was an interesting twist and one I enjoyed. Author also does a good job of making you form opinions about characters, only to have to change them as the story goes on (won't elaborate more, as that be too much of a plot spoiler.) I did feel like the main character was "in love" with someone pretty quickly after not very many encounters and no indication of more than a few weeks of even thinking about the man. All that being said, it was a good read on several fronts -- reminded me of several historical facts: Conditions in coal mines were terribly dangerous and were made even more so by the greed of their owners and the desperation of the men who worked them, women in certain professions fought a tremendous uphill battle, and medicine has come along way in the past century. :) Never hurts to be reminded of how far we've come. Even better when the reminder is clothed in a story.

The story continues but goes deeper into the backwoods of KY. Lilly has her job cut out for her just trying to be accepted as a newcomer, throw in that she is a woman doctor, and she will never find her place amongst these hill people. They don't take to strangers and they don't take to change!

This story is about a young woman doctor, in early 1900s, who goes to a small coal mining town on a temporary basis. The people have trouble accepting a woman doctor but she earns their respect and friendship. When she is offered a position in Boston, she has to decide if she wants to leave this community she has come to love or to stay. This is good story about love, taking risks, and learning to lean on God for the directions in life we should take.

I really enjoyed this book. I actually think I learned a bit more about mining and also about an earlier and simpler time in American history. The main character is a female doctor and has a hard time being accepted by the local mining community. Over time things change and the characters develop into interesting individuals. It was nice to read about a community caring for its own, the various descriptions of food, washing and other chores were making me very grateful we have more modern conveniences now. The book has enough twists to capture one's attention and it has a lot of love, sorrow and other emotions running through it. This won't be the last book I read from this author - I want more!

Jan has given us an unapologetic slice of the early 1900s. The prejudices of the time are reflected without resorting to the cliches or whining seen in other "historical" novels. She has also not offered the insult of making all rural, small town, people slovenly. True to human nature, Lilly's eventual acceptance is more spurred by the discovery of a family kinship than her skill as a doctor.

If you are looking for steamy romance with lots of ridiculous, unrealistic, sex, don't read this book! Both religion and romance are written with a balanced pen. It was refreshing to read a thoughtful, well crafted, story, peopled with genuine humans, rather than cardboard cut outs driving shallow, unrealistic, drivel.
I loved this book, this series has been precious to me such wonderful godly characters and the story line is wonderful. I hate to end this book on coppers life. This series has been wonderful. I recommend this author and any or all of these books. Lord bless you for writing them.
