Product Description

Lilly Gray Corbett loves living on Troublesome Creek, but she would much rather play with her best friend than watch her little brother and the twins. Her mama, Copper, is often gone helping to birth babies, and Lilly has to stay home. When Aunt Alice sends a note inviting her to visit in the city, Lilly is excited to go, and Copper reluctantly agrees to let her. Later, when they hear the news that the train crashed, Copper and her husband, John, rush to find out if their daughter is injured . . . or even alive.

Still House Pond, a chronological companion to the Troublesome Creek series, entwines Copper Pelfrey and her daughter Lilly in a story both romantic and thrilling. Jan Watson continues Copper’s tale as a midwife for nearby families and a mother who is hesitant to let her eldest daughter grow up. When Lilly is invited to take a cross-country trip to see her aunt, Copper nervously lets her go. The train wrecks and Copper’s life is upended as she searches for knowledge of her child.

At times, the plot had difficulty getting started and the event mentioned on the back of the book occurs more than halfway through the story. Additionally, the major twist happens long before the wreck, discounting the horror of such a tragedy because the reader already comprehends the situation. However, the characters are well-developed and realistic; the reader wants to invest in their lives and dreams. Copper and John’s marriage, in particular, is an excellent example of a God-saturated Christian relationship. Their attempts to aid the survivors of the train wreck while still searching for their daughter create the most powerful scenes in the book.

Though the book description declares Lilly to be the main character, this story is mainly about Copper Pelfrey. For the first time, she must go through the experience of letting a child grow up and leave. When she does finally let Lilly go to Lexington to see her aunt, the train wrecks. The resulting calamity, instead of breaking Copper apart, has her depending on her faith in God more than ever. She grows closer to the Lord even as her family bands in the tragedy.

Still House Pond spins a charming tale. There were moments where I could not wait to turn the page and discover where the story went next. Watson gives her characters a firm foundation in Romans 8:28, which summarizes the theme of the book: “All things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” Through tragedy and terror, Copper and her family depend fully on God, believing that whatever happens is in His plan. Because of a few mature themes and a scene of assault, this book may not be appropriate for younger audiences, but anyone who appreciates Jan Watson will enjoy her newest work. – Valerie Taylor, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I loved this book and the 3 other books in this series. They are so exciting, full of adventure, surprise, telling a beautiful story of salvation and putting their salvation and knowledge of God into practice. I ached for Lilly when she was kidnapped and when one of Copper's patients died. But their love for one another was great. Reading about the other children, the twin girls and the son was so much fun. The aunt was unbelievable how snooty she was, but that's what made for an interesting story. Both Lilly, Copper and John were good strong characters and their love for the Lord and the people in their communities was great to read about. I was amazed how well they dealt with childbirth, and sicknesses with what knowledge they had back then and thankful for the knowledge, and improvements there is today on those subjects. I loved how they depended on the Lord for guidance and protection. I liked Remy too and how she came aroud to be a productive person and friend. I would highly recommend this book and the series. Great reading.

    What a refreshing, honest look at family life! I enjoyed this book from the first page, found the scenes delightful. Though the story is told from multiple characters, it is told in such a fashion that one does not loose sight of whose position it is being told from. Also, though i knew where the characters were, the suspense and mystery was still there, and i kept turning those pages until the last one! I sympathized with Copper as she grappled with decisions, with Mandy as she wanted to be who she was not. i also felt for Lilly as she was struggling with growing up.

    This book is well written, and though part of a series, can easily be read as a stand alone

    Review: Stillhouse Pond - Troublesome Creek Trilogy - Jan Watson - 2010

    Set in the year 1896, Lily and her family live in a small country town of Troublesome creek. Her mother known throughout the novel as Copper, is the local nurse/midwife. Stillhouse Pond is part of a trilogy and focuses on two main storylines. The first storyline is of her mother's tale as a midwife and sets the tone for the story as she lets us on with the tale of her patients and their births -one in particular Adie Still.

    The second part of the story focuses on eleven-year old Lily as her mother recieves a letter from her late husband's sister Alice. Alice's brother Simon was Copper's first husband and Lily's biological dad. Alice- a wealthy woman has requested to have Lily come to Lewiston and visit her on an all-expenses paid trip. Copper a tad anxious has second thoughts about sending Lily alone on the train. Is it just the train ride thats bothering Copper or is it something deeper ? With the persuasion of her current husband John, Copper reluctantly agrees. However danger awaits for Lily as on the way to the train , she is kidnapped by the Still family who blame her family for the death of their wife and mother. At the same time, the train Lily was supposed to be on is in an accident , so Copper and the family believing that Lily was on the train rushes forth to Four Corners. As they search the rubble of the train wreck, how long will it take them to realise Lily wasn't on the train but holed up right under their noses back home in an old stinky barn ?

    Stillhouse Pond by Jan Watson is a novel that can either be read as part of the trilogy or a stand-alone .

    I really enjoyed this book, even though at first is was difficult to follow along with the many cast of characters. Cooper, who is Lily's mother, was a very interesting character, who gets into many interesting situations while delivering babies all over town. The family's faith is tested time and again through many difficult situations of Cooper's. Also, during the time that they are all searching for Lily who is feared dead in the train wreckage. During the time the family is searching for Lily, she is locked up in a old building on the property of Isa Still, who is the owner of the pond where Lily had taken a walk to instead of boarding the train. During this time of being locked up, Lily begins to discover things about herself. She was able to reflect and ponder and it helped her realize a few things that she didn't really know. I really enjoyed that aspect of the book, because it is during times of trials in my own life, that I tend to "discover" things about myself and begin to make changes for the better.

    I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the series from the beginning! Reading Still House Pond made me think of Anne of Green Gables and Little House on the Prairie. For me though, this book really hit the spot because I saw so much of me in Lily!
