Publisher's 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.

Dear Listener,

Why did I decide to return to Troublesome Creek?
"I actually had no intention of returning to Troublesome Creek, or for that matter ever writing again after my husband and I suffered through The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek's tumultuous journey. I spent more than five years and 14- to 16-hour days writing that story, and while doing research I was seriously injured and my husband almost died. There were too many sacrifices and losses stacking up, so I made the heartbreaking decision that my writing journey had ended. After publication, I began receiving hundreds of letters from all over the world—letters from folks of all ages, from churches of every denomination, schools and universities and more, pleading for me to continue the family's journey. Two women even wrote how they had been so inspired by the story that they started bookmobiles in underserved areas at the height of the pandemic. One day, after months of receiving these moving notes, my husband came into my office with tears in his eyes and said, 'You must write the stories to honor your Kentucky people. Lift up other women.' I then began to realize it could be a healthy way for me to climb out of the personal grief I'd been wading through, and to do just that: celebrate and pay tribute to brave women." – Kim Michele Richardson, writer of The Book Woman's Daughter

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.

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.
