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.

Review quote

Watson ("Troublesome Creek") sets her sweet novel in Lexington, Ky., shortly before WWI. There, Mazy Pelfrey, age 18, is struggling in secretarial school. The young sheriff from her hometown in the Kentucky mountains, Chanis Clay, is sweet on her, but Mazy is dazzled by a wealthy young man, Loyal Chambers, who begins to pay attention to her. Mazy must choose what, and who, she wants--a choice that tests her values. The details of Watson's period setting are well researched (Sanitol liquid tooth cleanser, syrup ices). Humor plays a prominent and welcome role in the narrative: an exploding jar of sauerkraut in a root cellar starts the action with a literal bang. Mazy is an engaging character, though some readers may find her youthful innocence cloying. Faith elements are natural and unobtrusive, except for one improbable conversion. Watson offers a well-written, squeaky clean read.--Publishers Weekly "Buttermilk Sky" is a light and refreshing read with beautiful characters who readers will adore. Mazy Pelfrey is a gem whose selfless and naive heart is endearing, although her naivete can also be exasperating. Watson does an excellent job at keeping the story moving while touching on important subjects in a way that is not overbearing or heavy.SUMMARY: After moving from small town life in the mountains of Kentucky, Mazy Pelfrey is not accustomed to life in the city of Lexington. Balancing social life, chores and studies takes up all of her time. However, when a new beau comes along, Mazy is swept off her feet. As she grows used to the new way of life, her past comes calling and Mazy is faced with decisions that will change her life forever. [Four stars.]--Romantic Times
