What is The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
This historical novel tells the story of Cussy Mary Carter, one of the last living Kentucky “Blue People.”
Have you heard about this rare genetic condition? I had not.
Set in Appalachia in the 1930’s, Cussy works as a traveling librarian on horseback. Again, this is something I know nothing about.
This makes the perfect historical fiction book for me: learning about something completely new and fascinating.

The My Purse Strings Virtual Book Club ran from 2018 to 2020. What started as an outlet to discuss books and to motivate me to read has turned into a Facebook Group where we recommend our favorite books, discuss what we’re currently reading, and I share the newest blog posts, product reviews, wellness tips, and more.
To find out more about my favorite books, check out some of our past book club discussions.
You can find all of these books and more in my Amazon Shop. Click below.
