The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
Set in 1930’s Appalachia, and inspired by the true stories of the blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the Kentucky Pack Horse library service, this new book is winning praise and acclaim for its beautifully written story of courage, hope, and the power of the written word to connect us all. One review by fellow author Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants) describes it as “a hauntingly atmospheric love letter to the first mobile library in Kentucky and the fierce, brave packhorse librarians who wove their way from shack to shack, dispensing literacy, hope, and - just as importantly - a compassionate human connection.”
As a firm believer in the power of the written word, this novel is immediately being added to my TO BE READ list!
