When Copper and her husband John hear news that Lilly's train crashed they rush to find out if their daughter is injured - or even alive.

Due to a hectic schedule, it took me a while to find the time to actually sit down and read this book. But from the moment I opened the front cover, to the moment I closed the final page, I simply could not put it down!.

Watson does an exemplary job at telling us a story of family love. Of growing into a woman of God. Of loss. Of grief. Of joys. Of heartaches. Of laughter. And of tears.

Copper is a woman who knows all of these emotions. And her young daughter Lilly is coming of age and experiencing the same.

I don't want to give away any of this book's secrets, as this is simply a story you'll want to experience for yourself.

I give this my "thumbs up award" as well as 5 stars

I highly recommend this book for teens and adults alike.

This would also make an excellent book for a group read for young teens and adults!

STILL HOUSE POND by Jan Watson is an Inspirational Historical Fiction set in 1896 Troublesome Creek, Kentucky. It is a continuance of The Troublesome Creek series but can be read as a stand alone. It is well written with details and depth. The plot and characters are easy to follow.It has faith, pride, survival, family, community values, midwifery, mountain people, twists, turns, family, melodrama, and trust. It brings back characters from the other Troublesome Creek books. This story actually goes between Copper, Lily, and Mandia.Copper, the midwife,mother, doctor of sorts to the mountain people, educator of the people toward health issues and above all the wife and mother of four children. Lily, Copper's eldest daughter, who is eleven, her father died several years earlier.Lily seeks adventure, loves her step father as her own, rescues animals, gets into serious trouble by rescuing injured animals, wants to go to visit her wealthy aunt by train, and is finally allowed to by her parents. She misses the train, which happens to have a horrific train wreck. Her family is not aware she didn't get on the train, but is kidnapped by a neighbor. Her mother, and step father go in search for her, soon learns she isn't there and get a search party going. Mandia, the hired girl for the Pelfrey family, wants to fall in love and have a family of her own, is attracted to a traveling singer, who is trouble. Mandia doesn't listen to want people try to tell her about this man. She soon learns her lesson the hard way and must face the consequences of her actions. You will see several of the characters are have been in the other Troublesome Creek books. Overall this is a well written story about about the era and living in the mountains of Kentucky. It is a good Christian read showing family and community values. If you enjoy sweet, easy to read, easy to follow the plot and characters and good Christian fiction you will enjoy this one.I would recommend this book, I have also read the others in the series,although this one does not bring the story of Troublesome Creek to an end, it leaves questions. Just as Copper is pregnant again, what happens to Lily and Mandia. This answers will probably be in the next installment. This book was received for review from Tyndale Fiction and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More. ( )

Lilly Corbett Gray, loves pretty things, and animals. Always on the lookout to rescue a hurting animal or to spring some evil traps, Lilly is a little girl with a big heart. However that rescue mode is what leads Lilly into the biggest mess of her life. Excited about her month long visit to her Aunt Alice in the city, she is anxious to go. Waiting for Manda the hired girl to finish her chores, and walk her to the coach, that will take her to the train, Lilly hears a dog who is hurting. Unable to leave it be, she goes to investigate and finds her neighbor throwing a sack of puppies into a pond, and what she heard was the mama dog wanting her pups. While rescuing the pups, the neighbor catches her and locks her up in a shed. Finding Lilly gone, Manda figures she just walked to the coach alone. And Manda has her own troubles, the no good middling man from the band at the barn dance, has tried to take advantage of her in the barn and beat her up. Manda runs away to her sisters, not wanting anyone to see her in the state she was in. The train that Lilly was on going to her aunts, has a horrible crash, killing and injuring many people and sending Lilly's family and friends into a panic of worry. Will they find Lilly in time? Will they discover she isn't on the train and find her in the shed? What will happen to Lilly Corbett Gray? This story, set in the late 1890's is a great read.

This book will be relesed by Tyndale in August 2010. 376 pages US $12.99 4 stars.
