Lilly is the doctor of Copper Brown a midwife in their Eastern Kentucky home but Lilly chooses to follow in her late father’s footsteps to become a doctor. Lilly has choices that she needs to make will she make the right ones? Will she trust God’s will for her life?
I enjoyed Skip Rock Shallows. I loved that it was set in my home state. In many ways it reminded me of Christy, but at the same time it was completely different as well. I’ve always wanted to read more about Lilly after reading Still House Pond. To me Skip Rock Shallows was a good close to Lilly’s story but I wouldn’t say no to more books in the series.
