"Cussy Mary Carter is the last of her kind, her skin the color of a blue damselfly in these dusty hills. But that doesn't mean she's got nothing to offer. As a member of the Pack Horse Library Project, Cussy delivers books to the hill folk of Troublesome, hoping to spread learning in these desperate times. But not everyone is so keen on Cussy's family or the Library Project, and the hardscrabble Kentuckians are quick to blame a Blue for any trouble in their small town. The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's determination to bring a little bit of hope to the darkly hollers"--

Based on the real life "book women" assigned by Roosevelt to bring knowledge and literacy in rural areas, the book woman is a compassionate librarian that brings books and literacy to a family of hillbillies that suffer from a genetic disorder in Kentucky. As the ignorance of the town brings conflict and hatred, the protagonist becomes caught in the turmoil.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book came highly recommended from a number of my fellow readers. I quite enjoyed it, although it wasn't a perfect book. Richardson does an excellent job creating the world of Depression-era Appalachia and Cassy, a "Kentucky Blue" woman, is a fascinating character. While this was a page turner for me, I still felt that there were a number of plot threads that were either underdeveloped or left dangling.

This book was far better than I thought it was going to be when I first picked it up. The protagonist, a woman with blue skin living in the mountains of Kentucky in the early twentieth century, proved to be independent and self sufficient. Cussy Mary faces discrimination because of her “color.” Her dad is a coal miner and is involved in efforts to unionize. She just wants to be left alone to work her route as a pack horse librarian.

WOW. A book hasn't gotten to me this much in a long time. What a beautiful story. "Richardsons rending of stark poverty against the ferocity of the human spirit is irresistible." Solid 5 stars - I loved it.

Kim Michele Richardson's The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a strong historical read. Set in the late 1930s in Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains. Cussy Carter is the last of the "Blue People," a small group whose skin is, literally, blue. Having faced prejudice her entire life, Cussy is thrilled to have found a purpose as a Pack Horse Librarian. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod Along with her donkey Junia, Cussy travels the mountains, dropping off books to families who otherwise would have no access to reading material. Cussy's father, parenting her alone since the death of her mother, has vowed to find Cussy a husband, to make sure that she will be taken care of after his death--which seems to be eminent since his health suffers from coal mine-related illnesses. ⬇️ 1mo
UnabridgedPod Unfortunately, when the marriage plan fails, mired in tragedy, Cussy faces threats from unanticipated sources, all while serving as witness to the consequences of poverty, of prejudice, and of superstition.⠀

This is one of those novels that highlights elements of society about which I knew nothing: the Pack Horse Library program, part of the WPA, hit a soft spot with this book lover, and I had never heard of the Blue People before, ⬇️
1mo
UnabridgedPod but Richardson's careful uncovering of the People and, eventually, of the truth behind their appearance, is fascinating. Definite recommendation! (I'm going to read Giver of Stars soon--Google the controversy if you haven't heard of it--and will share my review of that one soon.)⠀

Who else has read The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek? What did you think?

Finished this audiobook over Thanksgiving. Inspired to listen to it since the 'Pack Horse Librarians of Kentucky' story has been popular on social media. This is a story about racial discrimination, the loneliness and friendship of rural neighbors, and a tame romance. FYI, I had no idea that there is a genetic disorder that causes blue tinged skin and chocolate colored blood! Learned something new from this short historical fiction novel.

Cussy Mary works as a Pack Horse Librarian in 1930s Kentucky. She and her Pa are afflicted with blue skin, and believe they are the last of the Blues in Kentucky. I‘d never heard of this so I found it fascinating. They were ostracized by most people. Cussy just wants to enjoy her books and live a simple life, but living in Appalachia as a blue woman is not so simple. I really enjoyed this. It‘s well-written and you can‘t help but root for her. 4⭐️

"I curled myself into a tight ball on the blood-soaked Kentucky soil, wailing for Henry and all the Henrys in these dark hollows who'd never be a common grown-up. Stuck forever as Peter Pans." ??

Richardson killed me with this passage. So beautifully and painfully written.

Parts of the story were predictable, but that didn't diminish the charm of Richardson's novel. It beautifully portrayed the power of books, and served as a reminder to take nothing in life for granted. 4/5 ⭐

A fascinating book about the pack horse librarian program and the blue people of Kentucky - two things of which I knew absolutely nothing about.

I highly recommend this book.

**Supposedly the new book by JoJo Moyes was "lifted" from this one. I hate to believe that since this was such a wonderful and well-researched story. It would be a shame if a more well-known author got credit that wasn't deserved

jillrhudy It sure would. Especially since this author is actually from Kentucky and Moyes is not even from this country 2mo

I always enjoy historical fiction books when I learn something new. In this case, I learned about the blue-skinned people of Kentucky AND about the Pack Horse Library Project of the 1930s. I also love books about strong women who show kindness to others even when life is unfair and cruel. The audiobook version was excellent.

Scochrane26 I‘m from & live in Ky but never knew about the blue people until this book. Most of my book club didn‘t know much either. 2mo

This book about a Packhorse Librarian in 1930s Kentucky felt very visceral and real—I was right there with the main character, who goes through a lot of turmoil for very lame reasons, yet remains a total champ. Due to a rare genetic condition, Cussy Mary has blue skin. One of my faves of the year!

I really liked how this novel combined two true things: Blue People and Pack Librarians. The characters aren‘t drawn to be total angels or devils and the realities of life in that time are presented realistically. Recommended for fans of medicine or history.

What made me pull this was Reese Witherspoon‘s November Book Club pick. I am not even going to mention the book, but I am sure most of you know it. There has been a ton of controversy on with the book she selected and the possibility of plagiarism. I personally decided to read the book that came out first, and I am glad I did.

Please visit my blog at: http://obsessedbookaholic.com/2019/11/03/the-book-woman-of-troublesome-creek-boo...

Readswithcoffee Thanks for the information. I was not aware of the controversy. Just put this one on hold at my library. 3mo
LauraBeth @Lauren.archer I just popped in to say I am so troubled about this. Can you imagine if you spent years researching and writing a book on a topic that no one knows about and then a famous author releases a similar book at the same time (bc she was clearly tipped off on your book). The fact that so many bloggers and bookstagrammers are pushing Moyes book - as well as it being a Reese pick - speaks to the power that is Penguin Random House. (edited) 2mo
Lauren.Archer @LauraBeth i agree, I think I read somewhere that Penguin Random House might own the publishing house the other book, which is worse IMO, if that is true. 2mo
LauraBeth If they are part of the same publishing house it makes me wonder if they are taking lesser-known writers and feeding their content to their big stars. 🤔 2mo

JamieArc @Sace and @pigeonsandcrows There is a lot of compelling evidence of plagiarism by Moyes. If you google it, I‘m sure you‘ll find it. 3mo
Sace I looked at the book info for this and found the buzzfeed article. There is compelling evidence so I'm surprised this author's publishers chose not to pursue legal action. 3mo
MeganAnn @JamieArc I was also surprised and a little apprehensive seeing it as a BOTM choice. 3mo
JamieArc @Sace One of the things I think I read was that their publishers were either the same or linked somehow, and that there is a history of publishers (editors?) using material of lesser known writers for their better selling writers. I wonder if this happened in this case. If so, I would think they would be smarter about it. 3mo

I am enjoying this book immensely. It‘s about a young woman in 1930‘s Kentucky, who happens to be the last of her kind. A blue woman. I‘m fascinated by Appalachia and the blue people of Kentucky, so it‘s an interesting character study. The fact that she‘s a pack horse librarian riding her mule through the hillside to deliver reading materials and other necessities to other hill folk only makes this better. Definitely a book for Book Lovers!

This book was AMAZING! Cussy Mary is a fantastic character that leaves you wanting to saddle a horse and join the Pack Horse Library initiative. A story surrounded by real events in time. Her journey is sometimes hard but inevitably whole. I cried some and laughed some and learned some. I think that's exactly what Cussy aimed to do delivering all those books to her patrons! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Can't wait to read this in black and white print in the future! ❤
