Audio Book – 10 hours 39 minutes
Honey Lovett continues on with her mother’s work as the packhorse book woman after her parents are arrested. She works towards becoming emancipated, working and caring for herself.
I listened to the audiobook over several months, yet I found it easy to pick up where I left off.
This is book two of this series. The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is one of my favorite books.
The story takes place in remote areas of Appalachia where a woman’s place was in the home. It was hard to read about how some of these women were treated. Poor Honey was always looking over her shoulder.
The narrator did an excellent job reading the story. The accent used seemed authentic, yet wasn’t hard to understand. It helped me picture the setting as I was listening.
Blue-skin was new to me in the first book, and the way they were treated in both books is appalling. It was simply a blood issue, nothing more.
The writing threw me into Honey’s shoes as I was deep into the story as I listened. I would suggest reading Book One first, then continuing with this one.
