    I'm glad I stuck this book out. In the first couple of chapters, there was a character who really annoyed me. She sounded like Granny Clampet, and every time I came to her dialog, that was who I heard in my head. I was ready to put the book down, but I kept going. Fortunately, that character didn't last long, and once she was out of the story, the book took off. After a time, I started to really fall for the other characters. This author has an impressive command of scripture. I suspect that is what carried her through her work as an OB nurse. I delivered at the hospital where she worked. A friend of mine who also worked in on that floor came to visit with me while I was there. Something she said to me that day has stuck with me ever since. My friend talked about what a joy it is to send a family home when you can see how much the parents love the baby and that it is going to have a very good childhood, and how hard it is sometimes to put a baby in its mother's arms and send it out the door, when you have invested yourself in that baby for several days, and you can see that the parents don't love it and don't care. Jan Watson has written so much of that struggle into this series. I suspect she coped with that struggle by much daily prayer and Bible reading, and that comes through in these books.You can also see that this author has had long practice at forgiving and seeing both sides of a situation and a person, and that makes her characters believable and fallible, while still being lovable. There are no one dimensional characters in this series. Some you love immediately, and some you grow to love as the author reveals more and more of the heart and the pain of what seemed to be a completely unlovable person.This book is definitely worth reading.

    As you read you are transported to the hills of Kentucky and to the heart of Copper Brown. It's a delight to read both the struggles and the joys in her life. The characters are not predictable, as you will discover in the unexpected ending!

    This story takes place in a mountainous region of rural Kentucky around 1881. For our main character we are introduced to Copper, a red-haired sixteen-year-old girl struggling through her teenage years. After causing the readers to become familiar with the current setting and family structure, Ms. Watson transports the readers back in time using a wonderful technique called flashback. Through this process, we become over-filled with emotion as we meet Will (Copper's father), Julie (Copper's mother), and Grace (Copper's step-mother). We are then returned to the current time and place with a strong emotional attachment to all characters in this book and then the story continues...From the moment I opened this book and read the first paragraph I was captivated and knew that this book was to be refreshing. Full of love, heartache, laughter, and tears. Boy, was I right! Troublesome Creek is the best fictional novel that I have had the pleasure of reading in a very long time and I could not and would not put it down until I reached the end.This novel was full of plot-twist, family devotion, faith, humor, tragedy, forgiveness, and romance! I found myself crying & spontaneously laughing out loud. Not only do I recommend Troublesome Creek, but I can not wait to read the following two books in this series. Willow Springs and Torrent Falls.
