About the Book
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.

I have to say this is probably my favorite book by Jan Watson. I have read many of her other novels and this one has much stronger characters and depth of story line. I loved Mazy and reading about her daily life with silly women and life at school. In a lot of the books I read the schooling is not usually included but I really enjoy reading the things that they did back then. I was a bit confused on the start of the story and why it was so important to the rest of the book. I do think the story line could have been better organized, it jumped around a lot. Chanis' side of the story was not as interesting but the two story lines went together in the end nicely.
I think this is Jan Watson's best book thus far and recommend for a light read.
