Summary

Revisit the packhorse librarians of Kentucky with this stunning companion to the New York Times best seller The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek.

In the ruggedness of the beautiful Kentucky mountains, Honey Lovett has always known that the old ways can make a hard life harder. As the daughter of the famed blue-skinned Troublesome Creek packhorse librarian, Honey and her family have been hiding from the law all her life. But when her mother and father are imprisoned, Honey realizes she must fight to stay free, or risk being sent away for good.

Picking up her mother’s old packhorse library route, Honey begins to deliver books to the remote hollers of Appalachia. Honey is looking to prove that she doesn’t need anyone telling her how to survive. But the route can be treacherous, and some folks aren’t as keen to let a woman pave her own way.

If Honey wants to bring the freedom that books provide to the families who need it most, she’s going to have to fight for her place, and along the way, learn that the extraordinary women who run the hills and hollers can make all the difference in the world.

Wonderfully written.

This book took me away to another place and time just as her mother did in The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek. A must read.

Another excellent book by this author!

In the epilogue of this book, Kim Richardson describes the historical truths behind the Book woman’s novels. She also discloses her own history living in such extreme poverty, and then in a cruel orphanage. Her biography “The Unbreakable Child” is free for Kindle Unlimited, and will be my next read.

It always amazes me and I am inspired by people who somehow overcome such terrible obstacles to a successful life.
An enjoyable and meaningful book!

Excellent Sequel

I truly loved The BookWoman of Troublesome Creek and recomnended it to friends and family. when I heard a sequel was coming out I snatched it up immediatley. It is very well done and enjoyable. I am a seamstress and have to sit for hours sewing, so listening to books, and especially Kim's while away the time very enjoyable. I have listened to all Kim Michelle Richardson's books, and truly enjoyed them all.
I highly recommend them. Thank you.

Liked it...but Didn't Love It

This book has received such glowing reviews, I feel like a curmudgeon to admit that I found it okay (not great). Yes, I read the first book and thought it was wonderful. This book, which is not exactly a sequel but introduces a new story about a character we didn't really know in the first novel, lacks (to me) the same sense of energy and depth, most likely because the author introduced a whole new world to us in her first novel. Here, that sense of surprise and awe is gone.

In this novel, the heroine is 16-year-old Honey Lovett who, through some sad and dramatic circumstances, finds herself alone. Through a series of heartbreaking and traumatic situations, we see her strength as she continues to fight for her independence.

Yes, it is a good adventure, but many times (most times), the traumatic situations felt contrived, as if the author had to keep inventing situations for Honey to combat.

The narrator does a really nice job with this title. It was sometimes difficult to distinguish between characters but her voice is clear and easy to understand.

I liked the book...but I didn't love it, as I did her original novel.

Great read

I like to listen to books while I drive. I enjoyed The Book Woman. I loved The Book Woman’s Daughter! Honestly, I couldn’t wait to get in the car & hear more of the story. It’s a great story & very well read with a bit of Kentucky twang. ❤️

A Fabulous Read/Listen

Five BIG Stars! I loved Kim Michele Richardson’s first novel The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, but I think I loved her daughter’s story even more! I listened on audible and the narrator was again superb! I’ll listen again and again to Katie Schorr in a heartbeat! I highly recommend.

The book is as good or even better than the first book if that possible with this story line. Thanks for sharing your deep culture of Kentucky.
