The Book Woman’s Daughter is an emotional book involving emotional incidents that plagued poor and uneducated folk in the remote parts of Kentucky where courageous women took on the job of delivering reading materials to their patrons. The patrons lived and died looking forward to the books and literary materials being delivered to their cabins in the mountain country. I would recommend this book to anyone !

Not only is it a lesson in Kentucky history it’s a story about the right of women to work and be of significance in our world. I highly recommend this gem of a read! I so enjoyed this story and it’s characters will be memorable!
Loved this book!I have read the first book my Kim Richardson Book Woman of Troublesome Creek and loved it! I have also read a the book by JoJo Moyes about The Pack Librarians. As an avid reader, and a person that works in a school library, I find this subject fascinating and am in awe of the hard work, dedication, determination, and selflessness that went into being a “book woman”.This book is a well written addition to the subject matter and is also educates the reader more into racism….that isn’t about black and white…. But about being other….And I think this book, for me, is about friendship, and how sometimes friends become your family and those bonds are just as strong.
This novel was the absolute best one that I’ve read in the month of June 2022. Great Characters and great storytelling make it a joy to read.
The brave women who intertwine in the story demonstrate how important truth telling and relationships become when fighting becomes necessary in their prejudicial world.
