    • This is a Christian novel. Typically I'll pitch these right back on the shelf. They tend to be way too sappy and disconnected from actual Christianity. This book was actually very sweet and kept my attention. It seemed more like short stories about the same family, but it was nicely connected. The reaction to loss was more in keeping with how a person feels loss.


    • If I could have given this book more than 5 stars, I would have! This author has an awesome writing style that I like very much! Her words just flow so smooth, that you forget what time it is- very hard to put down this book. I love the characters, they are so real and visual! The plot continues easily from Bk.1, and it's even better than Bk.1! I highly recommend this series by Jan Watson!



    • Good clean Christian historical novelI loved this story of Coppers life, it puts me in mind of the old 60's movies of Tammy. This story is so great because they put Christ first in their lives, even with the hard places and struggles the Lord was glorified. I recommend the book and the most talented author.


    • More and more I am enjoying historical fiction stories. The simpler times and high adventure make each story unique and enthralling. The same is true with Willow Springs. I realized all too late that I had missed the prequel to this novel by Jan Watson telling tales of Troublesome Creek and the fire-y Copper. Even without the introduction I grew to love Copper, with her kind heart and infectious personality. From the back cover “Following a whirlwind courtship, seventeen-year-old Copper Brown [...]


    • Willow Springs is the sequel to Troublesome Creek, and was just as wonderfully written! There is something about Jan Watson's writing that is set apart from others she clearly knows her history. Anyhow, I really enjoyed this second book to the Troublesome Creek series. Copper truly growing up, and growing to truly love Simon. The stories of all the people Copper meets were very interesting, as were reading about the baby deliveries and all. All the intriguing things this book tells about. As I s [...]


    • The Story of Cooper Brown continues in this well written tale. We follow her life as she makes the difficult adjustment not just to married life, but to town life and town ideas so very different from her own homespun wisdom, ie the donning of shoes. Yet another radical change is that of going from working from before the sun rises through the day to a life of relative ease with a housekeeper who takes it as a personal offense if she tries to help with much at all. She is altogether just too inn [...]


    • This is the second book in the series. In this book, Copper has married her young city doctor, and is trying to make the transition to living in the city, and being a young married woman with means. She can't go barefoot, or help with the laundry, or cook or clean or do any of the other things she was used to doing up on her mountain to maintain daily life. How hard it must have been for her to make the change!She loves her husband Simon, so she tried hard to go along. Her sister-in-law Alice ju [...]


    • Willow Springs starts immediately where Troublesome Creek leaves off. Knowing of Copper's innocence, her fresh realness,I could hardly imagine how she could live, let alone thrive in the city. I was fascinated to find out what this story would be like. I thought it was wonderful. A LOT of things happen to and around Copper. I think another author might have made them seem far-fetched or fanciful, but again, this story just flowed. It was very real, and I loved and cared about the characters. I l [...]


    • This is a light, fast read and is thoroughly enjoyable. Unfortunately, I picked it up not realizing there are three in the series. Never mind. I'm going back to book 1, Troublesome Creek and will finish with the third. As I read Willow Springs, I wanted to go out and find Troublesome Creek, but I couldn't put it down long enough to go find it.


    • I am a sucker for clean romance. I LOVED the main character, Copper, and her integrity. At times it felt like everything was working out too perfectly for Copper but the end made up for all those feelings. I sobbed while reading the ending- being pregnant and emotionally unstable already, probably didn't help. :) LOVED it. Now I have to read the first book, "Troublesome Creek".


    • This sequel was everything that the first book was and more! The mountainside charm still remained and now you get to see the main character in action in a whole new environment. The new characters are skillfully drawn and added to those you loved from the first book. I loved it!


    • while I foudn the "story" spotty and disjointed at times I'll admit my absolute favorite moment was at the very very end of the book, where my confused heart (due to the first book, and my response to it) swelled and found a hope I'd longed for.Can't wait for the third installment!


    • I really enjoyed this book - any book that makes me cry is good. It was a fast easy read and hard to put down although it was predictable. I didn't read the first book of the series but it didn't matter. I can't wait to read the first and third book now.


    • Good book. A little slow sometimes, but I enjoy reading just about anything. I enjoy reading about customs of other cultures. While born and raised in Tn. I never knew such hard ships.


    • This is a wonderful Story of Laura Grace who grows up on troublesome creek in the mtns of Ky,She marries and moves from her mtns she loves so well to Lexington and the city life in this book. I can relate well to the story as I to am a Ky native. you will enjoy this story




    • I didn't read the first in the series and found that I really didn't need to to catch on. I really enjoyed it but I dout I will read the next in the series.


    • Wasn't sure if I would like that Copper has moved to the city----but the book was excellent and surprising.




    • I did not enjoy this one as much as I did the first of this series. However, it was still an ejoyable read with wonderful characters and poignant story lines.


    • I like "Copper" Brown in this series and her wonderful family. Jan Watson's a convincing writer and I wasn't sure I'd love a Christian Guild-style novel. I'm eager to read the third book now!


    • ChallengesLife in Willow Springs continue to twist and turn around Copper life. What goes around comes around and I see it coming full circle in book 3


    • I was a little surprised by the ending, but it makes you want to read the last book in the series which has just been published and I just placed a hold on it from our local library.



    • Loved this second book in the series seeing Copper mature & grow through life experiences while sharing her faith & seeking God. Totally unexpected tragedy blew me away!
