The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
by Kim Michele Richardson
PBR Review: (by- Linda - Mar 2019)

This book depicts the struggles of being different and the evil that surfaces when people feel threatened by the unknown. Real-life can be harsh. Cussy has blue skin and suffers discrimination and loneliness because people don't understand her medical condition.

She lives in extreme poverty and is a victim of domestic abuse. But she loves books, and she loves her job. She's a Pack Horse librarian, delivering books to remote areas of the Kentuckian Appalachian mountains. This book is well researched and complex. It shines a light on the hardships the coal miners of Kentucky faced and the devasting effects of poverty. It's a good read and perfect for book clubs. Cussy is easy to like and root for. Just one caveat - it starts slow. Recommend.
