Skip Rock Shallows by Jan Watson- Captured My Attention!

        Within the deep recesses of the coal mine camp in Skip Rock, Ky, close the the area of Troublesome Creek, Dr. Lilly Corbett faces the challenges that are reserved for the previous camp doctor. The resident's backwoods and simple way of life prove to be quite untrusting of a female physician. The mines remain in unrest as the workers fight illnesses and injuries. The services of Dr Lilly as needed more now than ever. When Lilly's fiance Paul arrives in Skip Rock it is as if she had never left her hometown in Boston. While Paul has plans for he and Lilly, her previous life keeps breaking into her thoughts as one who is recognized from the past but not acknowledged in the present. Will she be able to separate the two and make a wise decision?

This well written book hosts a cast of very likable and easy to get to know characters. Laugh aloud moments as well as tense ones coupled with romance keeps the story enjoyable. Dialogue, description and scenery work together well leaving no dull parts in the storyline. I found the overall message to be inspiring and I was challenged in my faith. I was entertained and will recommend this book to others.
