This is not a story I would typically read. This book was so unique, set in the 1930s and based off of the Pack Horse Librarians and the blue people of Kentucky. We learn about a people in history not often talked about.
This was a slow start for me, I struggled to get into the story in the beginning but was hooked by the end. Poverty, race, and prejudice are all themes covered in this book from the unique perspective of a blue-skinned woman who worked hard to bring books to many people.
The library route was so interesting. I can’t imagine having to have someone bring reading material via horseback only a few times a month. We are so blessed to have books at our fingertips.
The power of words was also something that I was thinking about as I read this book. The ending wasn’t my favorite, but I would still give this book 4-stars.
I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
