Buttermilk SkyButtermilk Sky by Jan Watson is delightful in every category a historical fiction novel should be. I enjoyed it immensely and I would rank Buttermilk Sky in my list of favorites this year.

Watson’s characters are warm and friendly. I love how Watson created a strong female character in Mazy Pelfrey who is determined to finish secretarial school…even though she isn’t a natural. She is away from home trying to figure it all out, including her feelings for her back home sweetheart, Chanis Clay.

This is a love story lived out every day for girls who have gone to college and left the love of their youth behind and wondered if there could be someone else. I truly enjoyed how the story played out. The tangible drama, sweet romance, and interesting side stories will leave you up late turning pages.

Buttermilk Sky is the first novel by Jan Watson I have ever read and I will definitely seek out her other titles. Watson writes outside of what I think of as the typical historical fiction formula. Buttermilk Sky is a five-star read! I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher, Tyndale House, in exchange for an honest review. I have not been compensated and all opinions are my own.
