Cussy Mary Carter brings joy, wonder, practical skills, and a wider view of the world to the patrons along her book route while facing poverty, domestic violence, and racism. Along the way she reminds the reader of the power and importance of books and words. I loved getting lost in this story which felt like a mix of the homestead life from Little House on the Prairie and the gutsy survival of Educated. It moved me to tears and taught me about life in the hills of Kentucky. Bluet's story will stay with me for a long time.

It was a really good book. Almost couldn't put it down. It was historical and informative, but at the same time, a really absorbing story.
