This was such a good read! The book takes place in Kentucky's Appalacian mountains in 1936 and it absolutely transported me to that place and time. I knew about the poverty of families and the harsh conditions of working the coal mines, but I didn't know about the "Blue people of Kentucky". It has made me think about things we take for granted. These people had so little access to books and reading material was hard to come by. There were children who were starving and had to walk long distances to go to school. Despite all these hardships, there are some sweet and beautiful moments in this book. My heart is more grateful for it.
