    This review was written for Tattler's Branch, Skip Rock Shallows Series #2.
    "Tattler's Branch" is set in 1911 in the mountains of Kentucky. I enjoyed being transported back in time

    while I read this book. I had to "Google" a couple of terms, but I really enjoyed reading "Tattler's Branch".  

     It was a different type of book for me since it isn't a romance, but a mystery.

    Tattler's Branch is actually the 7th in a series of books by Jan Watson.  I haven't read any of the other

    books, but Tattler's Branch stands alone well.   I thought the characters were well introduced and they

    had "flash backs" to help fill you in on the details that happened in the previous books. So if I were to

     read the earlier books after I read "Tattler's Branch", I would know some of the story plot points since

     they are "given away" in this one.

     I thought the book flowed really well.  It wasn't one that I read in a marathon session, but I found that

     it still had a nice pace to it and I did occasionally read longer than I had planned because I didn't want

     to put it down!

     I found it interesting to know more details about the abandoned baby than Lilly did and what was going

    on "behind the scenes".

    There are also "Discussion Questions" in the back of the book if you want to use it for a book club or

    reading group.

    Lilly Corbett is now married, and called Dr. Still by the patients in the town of Skip Rock. Her husband, Tern, is away on business while Lilly takes care of the townspeople and tries to solve a mystery involving her neighbor.

    I thought the book was a good read and the practice of medicine at the turn of the century interesting. Many of the characters are featured in the author's previous books, but this book can be read as a stand-alone novel.

    I absolutely love books from Jan Watson! She brings me to olden times in old places. I can't put her books down! The characters draw you in and the action is just right!

    "I received this book from Tyndale Publishing for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are my own."

    "Lilly Corbett Still has grown to love her life as the small-town doctor of Skip Rock, a tiny coal community in the Kentucky mountains. Though her husband, Tern, is away for a few months at a mining job, Lilly has her hands full with her patients and her younger sister visiting for the summer.

    Lilly turns to her good friend and neighbor, Armina, to help keep things in order--until a mysterious chain of events leaves Armina bedridden and an abandoned baby on her doorstep. Lilly works to uncover the truth, unaware of what a mess she's found herself in until a break-in at her clinic puts her on high-alert. As she struggles between what is right and what is safe, Lilly must discover the strength of her resilient country neighbors, her God, and herself."

    Such a good book to add to the shelf! I thoroughly enjoyed the action and mystery in this book, as well as Lilly's personality. She was such a good doctor and an even better big sister to her wild little sister, Mazy. Lilly's faith in God was also very inspiring. When the supposed father of an abandoned baby abducts her and little Timmy, she is fighting hard to love and forgive this man, just as Jesus would do.

    Armina was a good character, but I honestly did not like her. I don't mean that she should have been left out of the book, quite the contrary the book would not be Tattler's Branch without Armina, but I would not like to meet her if she were to be human. She was very grouchy, and picky about everything, and she never wanted help with anything. But, she did have a good heart, and was very caring towards her husband, the baby, and Lilly. So she was not all thaaaat bad!

    I loved how the story ended! How the father sent things as an apology to Lilly and Timmy for the abduction, the money and permission slip to take care of his little Betsy Lane, and how he became a Christian (it doesn't actually say that he became a Christian, but I am assuming because of his actions and the conversation he had with Lilly).

    This was a very good read, and I encourage you to read it as well!

    This review was written for Tattler's Branch, Skip Rock Shallows Series #2.
    Tattler's Branch, by Jan Watson, is a captivating book! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend reading Skip Rock Shallows, the book that precedes this one, first, but this book could easily stand alone if necessary.

    This story continues the story of Lilly Corbett Still, a doctor in the tiny town of Skip Rock, a coal mining community in eastern Kentucky. With her husband away on government business, Lilly finds herself overwhelmed when her best friend comes down with an unusual illness that affects the memory, leaving a very ill infant on her kitchen table. She attempts to care for both the friend and the baby, but events lead her into grave danger when the baby's father kidnaps her. She must rely on God alone to help her through.

    This was a delightful novel. The characters were delightful, and I found myself smiling at their antics again and again. I especially liked the way the town residents would assist each other and join together in times of need. I would definitely recommend it to all who enjoy historical fiction.

    I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
