Revisit the packhorse librarians of Kentucky with this stunning companion to the New York Times bestseller The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek.

In the ruggedness of the beautiful Kentucky mountains, Honey Lovett has always known that the old ways can make a hard life harder. As the daughter of the famed blue-skinned, Troublesome Creek packhorse librarian, Honey and her family have been hiding from the law all her life. But when her mother and father are imprisoned, Honey realizes she must fight to stay free, or risk being sent away for good.

Picking up her mother’s old packhorse library route, Honey begins to deliver books to the remote hollers of Appalachia. Honey is looking to prove that she doesn’t need anyone telling her how to survive. But the route can be treacherous, and some folks aren’t as keen to let a woman pave her own way.

If Honey wants to bring the freedom that books provide to the families who need it most, she’s going to have to fight for her place, and along the way, learn that the extraordinary women who run the hills and hollers can make all the difference in the world.

This is an amazing novel!! I didn't know about the blue skin of Kentucky ! also the book delivers. so as amazing as this book was I learned about American history . also the prejudice that still exists today rather than understanding people who are different.I one hundred percent recommend this book and continue reading and understanding all people!! one more thing the narrator is amazing I love the dialect!!!

Honey Lovett, the (packhorse librarian) book woman's daughter, is dealt a new hand once her parents got into some trouble. Her family had always been on the run from their troubled life, and it finally caught up to them. To avoid being sent away or sent to child work because of her parents, Honey ran away to make a different life. She takes us along her journey to fight for her emancipation, all while spreading her joy for books. Honey takes books alongside her route, just like her mother once did. The story is based in the Kentucky mountains, with the blue skinned people. Honey received help along the way, even helped others in need. She had to prove to the courts/law that she could take care of herself without being married off. This was a great read. I found out there was part of a series. However, it's a good stand-alone book. Maybe I'll go read the first one so I can see what Honey went through before her life took a new turn. #Book10of020 #BookWorm #Whatsnext
