The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson is a story about about prejudice, about being seen as "different," and about acceptance. It is set in the historical context of the blue people of Kentucky and the 1930s Pack Horse Library Project. The themes and the main character resonate, making this a memorable story. The fiction points me in the direction of history I did not know.

Note: If you are a Jojo Moyes fan, compare this book to The Giver of Stars and perhaps look up and read about the controversy.
