The year is 1936 and Cussy is employed as a Pack Horse Librarian by the government, as part of the Works Progress Administration, to deliver books in the hills of Kentucky and her father just wants her married off.

"It's my job to tend to the folks who are hungry for the learning."

Cussy, one of the "Blue People of Kentucky", a genetic trait that gives sufferers a blue-tinged skin, is a part of history that I had not read about previously. I can't wait to read more about her life!
