 We used our BINGO reading challenge to help select the book. The category: a book that grabs you by the title or cover. If you head over to our Facebook Group, you’ll see that members nominated a bunch of books. Members voted and The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek won by a landslide.

Check out my downloadable “Books Club Questions for THE BOOK WOMAN OF TROUBLESOME CREEK” at the end of this post! 

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. 

If you want to learn more about the Blue People, check out the video below.
