Reviews - What do customers think about Willow Springs (Troublesome Creek Series #2)?
Well written Apr 7, 2008
I throughly enjoyed this trilogy and found it very thought provoking. Hopefully she will write somemore.
FASCINATIONG Mar 11, 2008
We first met Copper Brown in "Troublesome Creek", the first of a trilogy written by Jan Watson.
Copper grew up in Troublesom Creek in the mountains of Kentucky and she was very close to her family and neighbors. Copper just loved these beautiful mountains, but when she met and married Dr. Simon Corbett she moved to the city of Lexington, Ky.
Copper loved her husband very much, but had much to learn about city living. Her sister-in-law, Alice Benton was quick to point out to her the errors she made and disliked Copper very much. Over time these two learned to love each other, but much as Copper's life was happy, she still longed for the mountains she had left behind.
In time she came to feel comfortable with her life as she began helping her husband in his practice. She especially liked the after care she provided women who had just given birth.
No one could have predicated the tragedy that would change their lives forever.
I'm just now going to start reading "Torrent Falls". If it is as good as the first two books, I know I will also enjoy this one.
For those who like historical romance, Willow Springs is entertaining Jul 2, 2007
Willow Springs is the sequel to Jan Watson's first novel, Troublesome Creek. Even though it is a sequel, Willow Springs stands on its own because of its distinctive characters. This is a romance story that takes place in a small town during the Victorian era, following the struggles of Copper Brown Corbett, a backwoods mountain girl, as she tries to adjust to married life, family, and new surroundings. Although she seems childish at first, as challenges arise Copper proves herself to be a spirited heroine, and her faith in God is easily seen as she meets those challenges.
However, the book is weighed down by lengthy descriptions of clothing, and a plot that wanders. Issues of importance are brought up (such as a possible family secret of which Copper is unaware, but others know) and are then never resolved. Or problems are brought up and resolved too easily, such as the strained relationship between Copper and her sister-in-law. The book does handle delicate issues like pregnancy and childbirth very skillfully, conveying the emotion and stress without being graphic. For those who like historical romance, Willow Springs is entertaining, but certainly not the potential classic it could be. - Jessica Becker, Christian Book Previews.com
another amazing read from Jan Watson May 24, 2007
I've been an avid reader since I was 4 - taught myself to read, actually. I was mesmerized by Jan Watson's first book, Troublesome Creek. I couldn't wait for her next book and, as cliche as this sounds, I couldn't put it down (and I don't say that about many books). Jan's writing style is maturing and there is a confidence evolving in her work. Few authors have the ability to put me "right there", the ability to make me forget everything and be swept away by their characters and plot, to forget I'm reading a book curled up in my own bed. But Jan Watson certainly can. I can't wait to read her next book and I hope she will continue to touch my heart with some of the best Christian fiction I've ever read.
