The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
by Kim Michele Richardson


BOOK REVIEW by Rachel Roushey

Inspired by the dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse Library Services of the 1930s, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek follows the story of Cussy Mary Carter.  Life is not easy in the mining town of Troublesome Creek, but it is even harder for Cussy and her father who both have a rare skin condition that has tinted their skin blue. Cussy's father is determined to see her married off so she is taken care of once he is gone, but finding the right suiter proves to be challenging.  Cussy is perfectly happy to remain single so she can do what she loves, working for the Kentuck Pack Horse Library Service bringing books to those who live in the most remote hills of the Appalachians.  There are dangers over every hill and not everyone welcomes Cussy as she makes her way through the mountains on her pack mule. Richardson's powerful storytelling makes this book come to life and sheds light on the poverty and prejudice of the time. It is a remarkable story that will remind the reader of the importance of books, empathy, and community.

The Bookwanderers by Anna James

Matilda Pages lives with her grandparents in their bookshop in north London.

While on a fall school holiday, strange things start happening at the bookshop.  Tilly begins seeing and spending time with characters from her favorite books. Her friend Oskar does not believe her until one day he too sees Anne of Green Gables with his own eyes. It turns about, Matilda Pages comes from a long line of bookwanders.
