Comments Buttermilk Sky

  • Shantelle

    I adore Jan Watson's novels every time! They're such rich historicals! Bringing you to another time and another place; giving you a wondrous peek into the past. Into the lives of young people such as myself, yet in quite a different world. I love it! And I loved Buttermilk Sky! (Not to mention, that title is adorable!! ^_^)Buttermilk Sky is about Mazy Pelfry, the younger sister of Lilly (from Skip Rock Shallows and a few of the other books). Mazy has left the country home, and is in town, study [...]

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel!Buttermilk Sky takes readers back to a simpler time (1914 Kentucky). Main character Mazy has moved to Lexington to attend typing school. She learns a number of life lessons during her time there.Main male character Chanis was so likable and believable. He is a good man. I especially loved how he befriended criminal Frank (Frank was a riot).I didn't realize this novel followed what happened in prior series by the author. This is my first novel by Jan Watson and wil [...]

He doesn't stop to consider that things may have changed for Mazy while she's away. She's been enjoying a more fashionable lifestyle in a bigger town, and the flattering attention of Loyal Chambers, a young man who is completely different to Chanis.A strong romantic thread is [...]


  • Emma Jane

    Alright, I admit it. The main thing that drew me to this book was the gorgeous cover. I mean, LOOK AT IT. The hat, Her blue eyes. The house in the background. The elegant swirly designs. I was bewitched into buying it partly because it would just look so pretty on my shelf. Heehee. Not entirely. The synopsis intrigued me too, and at the time I needed a light-hearted romance, so I gave it a try. I'm glad I did. This book is not amazing, heart-throbbing or life-changing, but it was perfectly adora [...]

    I was attracted to Buttermilk Sky by the beautiful cover, and the interesting blurb: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.

  • Beverly

    Buttermilk Sky is a turn-of-the-century tale that follows Jan Watson's previous historical novels: Tattler's Branch, Skip Rock Shallows, Still House Pond, Sweetwater Run, and the Troublesome Creek series which includes Troublesome Creek, Willow Springs, and Torrent Falls. The book stands completely on its own although reading her other books would deepen the atmosphere and heighten our appreciation of the sub-culture captured in these books. Young Sheriff Chanis Clay is following in his father's [...]


  • Elizabeth

    I must confess, I am a sucker for historical romance so I was expecting to like Buttermilk Sky for at least that aspect of it. I wasn’t expecting much beyond that, but the book did surprise me with how well it was written and for the occasional moment that made me chuckle. Overall it was quite a pleasant book and I’m not sorry I read it, though it was more of an “indulgence” book than a “wow this blew me away it was so good” book.The one thing that stops me from really enjoying it, t [...]

  • Brittany

    Buttermilk Sky was an interesting story, however, I did not really connect with the main characters in the book. Strangely enough, even though I was not emotionally tied to the main characters, I still had trouble setting the book down because I was anxious to see where the story led.The author is a true wordsmith, and the way she writes a scene is just gorgeous. I really did feel immersed in the time period. The cover is also very striking and I felt that it fit the story well.I just did not ev [...]

  • Amy

    Buttermilk Sky is a fabulous read. I really enjoy reading Jan Watson's books and love how she updates the readers on what is going on with the characters from her past books. I loved how Mazy is the main character in this book. I enjoyed reading her time being away from home and becoming a young woman on her own. I loved this book and I highly recommend it.5 stars.I received this book from bookfun in exchange for my honest reivew which was given.


  • Ria

    So organic! Another trip to Skip Creek and not a moment too soon! It was lovely getting to know Lilly's little sister Mazy and getting carried away in the romance that wasn't and the coming of age that couldn't come fast enough! Learning what became of Mazy's friends has me hoping that a particular one will be featured in a story with her own brand of spice!


  • Sonya

    Enjoyed the delightful descriptions of characters and setting, fitting the country background and the simple pace of the character.Had several threads of mystery and suspense that propelled the reader through the book.

Thinking she might like to be a secretary, she attends a secretarial school, learning how to type and take letters and other secretarial things. But attending the school and learning these things is a lot harder than she thought it would be and she debates whether or not to give up and return home.Part of the story is also show [...]

    Buttermilk Sky is the first book I have read by Jan Watson, and now have to say she has another fan. Watson has a great way of making you love the characters. They are all so easy to relate to in different ways. Through the whole book I was rooting for them to do better and make the right decisions. Watson made the relationships between the characters like many are today. There is often a pull of power here and there, and some people are afraid to be themselves for fear of losing the friendship.

  • Valerie (Val's Vicinity)

    Mazy is in a clique of girls headed up by the sterotypical "mean girl", who directs and manipulates many things to go in her favor. Mazy doesn't quite fit into the group of girls and she sometimes questions their actions, but unfortunately she generally goes along with what they do anyway. While I liked seeing Mazy question their behavior, I was kind of disappointed that she never took a big stand on her feelings. All the girls are in the same secretarial classes, and I do admit that I liked the [...]
