About the Book:
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.
Centering around three main characters, this amazing piece of historical fiction is bound to draw you in and not let you go until the end. Copper is the local midwife, Lily is Copper's daughter and Manda, their hired help. Quite believable but somewhat slow to start, the book builds up momentum and will hook you in in no time. Get ready for some heart stopping excitement as well as a wonderful heartwarming story. Be warned this is part of a series, so not everything is resolved.
This is the second book of the series, but you can read it pretty much as a stand alone (but believe me, you won't want to because it's really that good!)
