Lilly Corbett Still has grown to love her life as the small-town doctor of Skip Rock, a tiny coal community in the Kentucky mountains. Though her husband, Tern, is away for a few months at a mining job, Lilly keeps busy with her patients and her younger sister visiting for the summer.
Her hands full, Lilly turns to her good friend and neighbor, Armina, to help keep things in order. But when a mysterious chain of events leaves Armina bedridden and an orphaned baby on her doorstep, Lilly must trust in God and her resilient country neighbors to help her uncover the truth.
While working late one night, Lilly cares for a patient whose odd behavior sets her on edge, but she’s unaware of what a mess she’s found herself in until a break-in at her office puts her on high alert. Struggling between what is right and what is safe, Lilly discovers the strength of her neighbors, her God, and herself.
I read the first book in this series, Skip Rock Shallows, last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great fun to catch up with the characters that I remember from the first book.
Simpler times in history do not necessarily mean there is no danger or mystery. Lilly quickly learns that someone in her small community has an agenda all their own, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Lily's good friend and closest neighbour Armina is definitely one of my favourite characters. Even with amnesia, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Stories of strong and independent women from historic times always inspire and motivate me. This great inspirational series is one that I highly recommend.
