Best of 2019 Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win a Paperback or eBook Copy of "The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek," by Kim Michele Richardson!


Welcome to the Best of 2019 Giveaway Hop! Every blogger participating in this hop is giving away a book they loved that was released in 2019. For my giveaway, I am offering one lucky reader their choice of a paperback or eBook copy of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek. I absolutely loved this novel. It was so unique. I had never heard of the real blue-skinned people of Kentucky or of the Kentucky Pack Horse library service, so this story was fascinating. Poor Cussy Mary faces extreme prejudice due to her unusual blue skin color, as well as many dangers traveling the hills on a mule to deliver books to the poor people in her community. This is the story of a woman of tremendous courage who never gave up trying to improve her life and that of her community. Read on for more information...

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek: A Novel
by Kim Michele Richardson

The hardscrabble folks of Troublesome Creek have to scrap for everything -- everything except books, that is. Thanks to Roosevelt's Kentucky Pack Horse Library Project, Troublesome's got its very own traveling librarian, Cussy Mary Carter.

Cussy's not only a book woman, however, she's also the last of her kind, her skin a shade of blue unlike most anyone else. Not everyone is keen on Cussy's family or the Library Project, and a Blue is often blamed for any whiff of trouble. If Cussy wants to bring the joy of books to the hill folks, she's going to have to confront prejudice as old as the Appalachias and suspicion as deep as the holler.

Inspired by the true blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the brave and dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service of the 1930s, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's belief that books can carry us anywhere -- even back home.
