    This review was written for Tattler's Branch, Skip Rock Shallows Series #2.
    Tattlers Branch is a good historical novel that gives readers an idea of the hardships that were experienced living in the mountains of Kentucky. The main character is Lilly, who is a doctor in a small time. She keeps a busy life taking care of her patients and her younger sister who is visiting for the summer. Then, when her neighbor and friend Armina shows up with a baby and no memory of how she got the baby, mystery buds. As Lilly tries to figure out whose baby it is, how Armina got the baby, a strange man keeps a close eye on the clinic. Who is this strange man and does he have anything to do with the baby? Where did the baby come from and will they find the childs family? How did Armina get the baby and will she recover her lost memories? This was a very good book with the perfect mix of suspense, mystery, and emotion that will keep you turning the pages until you have read the entire book. Once I begun reading, I could not put it down.

    This review was written for Tattler's Branch, Skip Rock Shallows Series #2.
    Last year, I really enjoyed reading Skip Rock Shallows, the prequel to this book. While each of these two books easily stands on its own, I enjoyed reading about the same characters again and finding out what happened to them. The main character is Lilly, a woman doctor. The book takes place during the 19th century and it is so interesting to read about 19th century ideas concerning medicine, treatments, and opinions on diseases like Down Syndrome and epilepsy--both of which are tackled in this book. The author has definitely done her homework; not only is the story entertaining, but the history included is enough to teach me a thing or two and to whet my appetite for further research. I really enjoy Jan Watson's books and definitely recommend this one!

    Tattler's Branch by Jan Watson is the story of Lilly Still who has grown up in Skip Rock. Skip Rock is a tiny coal mining community in the Kentucky mountains. Lilly Still is the doctor in this tiny town and has her hands busy with her patients and her little sister visiting for the summer. Her friend and neighbor Armina has been a great help to her this summer. But when Armina turns hill and shows up with a baby but doesn't remember it Lilly is one busy women. But whose baby is it and why is their a strange man watching her clinic.

    This book is a good read. It can be a bit slow and goes off on a few tangents but it was still enjoyable. In a lot of ways it reminded me of Dr. Quinn medicine women. Technically this is the second book in this series but it can easily be read by itself

    Tattler's Branch continues the story of Doctor Lilly Corbett, now Still. The book follows Skip Rock Shallows. I love Lilly because she is such a strong woman to be living in the early twentieth century. The book has good and enjoyable mystery and suspense. The ending was not near what I had predicted.

    Great book! I hope to see another story that will continue with Lilly and her family in the future.

    This review was written for Tattler's Branch, Skip Rock Shallows Series #2.
    Taking place in a small Kentucky town in the early 1900's, Tattler's Branch is a story of Lilly Still, a woman doctor. The story is told through the eyes of several people which gives the reader a better understanding of what is really happening. The primary viewpoint is that of the doctor. Throughout the entire story her husband is away for his job. But the story is also told through the viewpoint of Armina, Lilly's friend and neighbor, and Shade Harmon, the "bad guy." Mazy, Lilly's younger sister, is also a key character - I found it funny that she loved the newfangled telephone and put it to use right away!

    I enjoyed this book and if you like historical fiction you will too. Although Lilly is married, her younger sister provides a bit of romance for the romance lover.
