Book Review: The Book Woman's Daughter, by Kim Michele Richardson

The Book Woman's Daughter by Kim Michele Richardson book cover and review
If you enjoyed The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, then you definitely want to pick up The Book Woman's Daughter. If you are unfamiliar, you should click and go read my review of the first book.

The Book Woman's Daughter continues the story of the packhorse librarians of Kentucky in the 1950s. As the title indicates, this story is about Cussy's daughter, Honey. 

At the beginning of the book, Cussy and her husband are being arrested and taken to jail for miscegenation. The authorities are going to try to take Honey and put her in a workhouse for orphans. So, of course, she runs.

The story involves many old characters and several new ones. I didn't feel Daughter was quite as tense as the original book, but in the end, it ramps up quite nicely.

I highly recommend both books. This book, although a sequel, has been marketed as being a stand-alone, but I would not recommend reading The Book Woman's Daughter unless you have read the original. There is just too much back story in the first book that immediately attaches you to the characters in the sequel.

  1. I'm waiting for my turn from the library. I loved Book #1. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I am glad to know the story is continued as I felt like the first book ended in a cliff hanger. I've just started seeing this one around, but yours is the first review I've seen so thank you! I'm glad to hear it's good.

  3. I liked Book one myself very much. I hope I can get to this one.


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments!
