The Book Woman’s Daughter ~ The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek #2 (by Kim Michele Richardson)

This is an excellent sequel to The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek. I loved learning more about the Women of the Pack Horse Library Project. they were such strong and dedicated women who served an amazing service to the people of Kentucky. The previous book deals with Cussy Mary Carter, while this one covers the life of her daughter, Honey Mary Angeline Lovett. Between being judged for her physical condition of having blue skin, being a woman trying to serve those who live in a remote region of Appalachia, and the ability to survive so many dangers has you cheering her on. Another positive aspect of the book provides information about the women who worked in the mines as well as served as fire lookouts for the forest towers. Their strength and dedication was astonishing. The prejudices they suffered and mistreatment they endured will break your heart and enrage you for all they experienced. Such well-developed characters come alive on the page. I would encourage you to absorb the author’s notes at the end of the book. Important information is shared and the amount of research the author conducted supports the details shared on the pages.

Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Landmark for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
