Win a Copy of "The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek" by Kim Richardson
"In The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, author Kim Michele Richardson weaves together two real things – the Blue People of Kentucky and the Pack Horse Librarians – into one authentic work of historical fiction.
With lyrical language, the author develops a strong sense of place and atmospheric tone that brings the difficulties and realities of Depression-era Kentucky to life. But what is most memorable is Cussy Mary, the novel’s main character, who endures racism and abuse while trying to save those around her in any quiet way she can. Troublesome Creek is a great read for those who enjoyed Beartown and Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand."
