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.
