ABOUT THE BOOK
Weary of the expectations imposed on her by her strict upbringing, eighteen-year-old Mazy Pelfrey prepares to leave her home in the Kentucky mountains for the genteel city of Lexington, where she'll attend secretarial school. She knows her life is about to change - and only for the better. Everything will be blue skies from now on.
But business school is harder than she thought it would be and the big city not as friendly, until she meets a charming young man from a wealthy family, Loyal Chambers. When Loyal sets his sights on her, Mazy begins to see that everything she'd ever wished to have is right before her eyes. The only hindrance to her budding romance is a former beau, Chanis Clay, the young sheriff she thought she'd left firmly behind.
Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazy's cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.
~ MY REVIEW ~
I adore Jan Watson's novels ... every time! They're such rich historicals! Bringing you to another time and another place; giving you a wondrous peek into the past. Into the lives of young people such as myself, yet in quite a different world. I love it! And I loved Buttermilk Sky! (Not to mention, that title is adorable! ^_^)
Buttermilk Sky is about Mazy Pelfry, the younger sister of Lilly (from Skip Rock Shallows and a few of the other books). Mazy has left the country home, and is in town, studying shorthand and other such typing duties. She struggles to fit in. To please her friends. Should she befriend the poor girl that everybody laughs at? Should she send home her old-time beau and accept the attentions of a dashing, young gentleman from town?
Jan Watson wove together another simply beautiful story. Her stories are just so simple, real, and sweet that they're completely unique! I don't think I've read other historicals quite like them. I adore Copper, Lilly, and Mazy and their stories! So thoughtful. So endearing. So captivating. There's humorous situations; sad happenings; real-life scenarios (just in a different era); gentle moments ...
Mazy goes on a journey of realizing who she really wants to be, and what is truly important in life. I so enjoyed journeying along with her. She has such a gentle spirit. I loved the cats. And Cinnamon! And just everything! *huggles book* If you're into historical, you so need to check these books out!
I can't wait to read more. I don't think I will ever tire of Jan Watson's writings!
