The year is 1883 and following a whirlwind courtship, seventeen-year-old Copper Brown finds herself living in the bustling city of Lexington, KY, far away from her beloved mountain home, newly married to a man she barely knows. Having been raised to put her trust in God, Copper sets out to find a purpose for this new life that she had never imagined.
I found my first Jan Watson book on a discount table. The cover really drew me in so I read the back cover. Now I am hooked! I just finished the Willow Springs book and can't wait to read the next one. I can really imagine myself in the story and somehow "being there". I am looking forward to other Jan Watson books in the future!
It is not often the sequel surpasses the greatness of the first novel but Jan Watson has achieved just that. This book is a winner in every aspect of the word. It will grab your heart as she takes you through a whirlwind of emotion. I just couldn't put it down and dreaded for it to end. If you only read one book this is the one! Wonderful!
I enjoyed the book but wasn't as blown away by this second book of this series as I was by Book One!I thought the depth of the characters in Book One was exceptional - rather comparative with Francine Rivers in surprising ways! Book Two did not give me that same appreciation. While being a good read, it was less compelling than I was expected! I will look forward to Book Three should there be one and I'll approach it with open mind, hoping it will touch me as deeply as Book One! I was a tad disappointed in Book Two! I love the covers though, again particularly Book One's! No, you can't know a book by it's cover, however, the cover is what first attracts me!
I loved this book even more than the first in the series. The characters in Willow Springs were so well drawn out that I missed them when I finished the book! Looking forward to reading what comes next in Copper's life!
