5.0 out of 5 stars This is a good story.
By Caldiva on November 3, 2019
I haven't cried over a book for a while but I did cry over this one. The storytelling is good. She writes in the voice of the people and describes the scenes vividly so that you feel there. There are really more stories than the book woman. It's also a story of Appalachia, extreme poverty, discrimination, women's sufferings, miners, and a love story. You know the struggles were real, even though this is fiction. I haven't written to many authors as a fan but I will this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and Addictive
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 30, 2020
Isolation is the painful undertone of this book. The Blue people of Kentucky were segregated in the 1930s much the same as those who had anything but white skin. This book explores the life of Cussy Carter, the last living female of the rare Blue People ancestry and is based on true life.

This novel is a love letter to books. It will make you feel like it was written hundreds and hundreds of years ago. When in reality it’s the story of generations that are alive today. In a few lifetimes, how things have changed and evolved is really impressive. The difficulty for many in obtaining books and reading materials back in the 1930s is highlighted throughout this book. Education, learning to read, learning to write and being transported to other worlds in the few pages of a book were a luxury.

Gratitude, Pride, Sacrifice, Family, Love, Loss and Strength are just some of the themes that stood out to me as I read this book. I read it in less than a day because once I started, I couldn’t stop. I even started my review as I went along because I didn’t want to forget the emotions that it was evoking in me. I really do recommend this book especially if you enjoyed Where The Crawdads Sing.
