Book Review: Still House Pond


Still House Pond by Jan Watson

This thrilling piece of fiction takes place in 1896.  Still House Pond tells the tale of a blended family, Copper the mother is the local midwife who is often pulled from her large family to care for others.  Through a unique set of circumstances the parents believe their daughter has been terribly hurt or worse due to a train accident.
Each member struggles to grow in their faith in the Lord.

I would recommend this book for adolescent young ladies to adults. I don’t feel that a clear message was presented to the reader on how to grow their own faith.  That being said, this is a fiction novel and it’s purpose is to entertain, and it certainly did.  The suspenseful surprise keep me quickly turning pages and I certainly couldn’t put it down.  I was glad to see that even though this book was really about the women in the story, the men’s parts were written in such a way to not appear as weaklings, other than the villain. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends to read.

Sounds interesting... but does it have a sad ending? I know I'm lame but I hate upsetting endings (well unless I write them ;)

Now Eliza Leigh you know I can't tell you the ending! I can say that it's a solid/good ending. Your blog is so cute!
