Buttermilk Sky by Jan Watson

Goodreads | Amazon
Weary of the expectations imposed on her by her strict upbringing, eighteen-year-old Mazy Pelfrey prepares to leave her home in the Kentucky mountains for the genteel city of Lexington, where she'll attend secretarial school. She knows her life is about to change – and only for the better. Everything will be blue skies from now on.

But business school is harder than she thought it would be and the big city not as friendly, until she meets a charming young man from a wealthy family, Loyal Chambers. When Loyal sets his sights on her, Mazy begins to see that everything she'd ever wished to have is right before her eyes. The only hindrance to her budding romance is a former beau, Chanis Clay, the young sheriff she thought she'd left firmly behind.

Danger rumbles like thunder on a high mountain ridge when Mazy's cosseted past collides with her clouded future and forces her to come to terms with what she really wants.

Jan Watson’s Buttermilk Sky is an all-around heartwarming story. Largely a character-driven novel, its characters face realistically challenging problems and decisions and I really enjoyed seeing the process of growth and choice. I loved the slower pace of the novel, which was a nice change for me to read. And as Mazy, Chanis, Loyal and the rest of the characters interact, I was particularly intrigued by the way Watson highlights the differences between city life and rural life. A great story of romance and faith, Buttermilk Sky is well-told and entertaining. I would recommend it to readers of historical romance looking for a nice read.
