Thank you to Bookish for an advanced copy of this book. This book was full of history that I had no idea about. This book was very well researched about Appalachia, the book women and "blue people" It went deep about how people were treated, the racism due to the color of her blue skin. I could not put this book down! Excellent!
Richardson takes the reader on a journey through the past in a little-known, seemingly lost part of the country, where we meet Bluet, one of the last remaining blue-skinned people in Kentucky. The rich setting details and historical accuracy make this a learning experience as well as a riveting read.
With lovely prose, vivid descriptions, and building tension, the author has created a unique story with a human theme that will always resonate: Despite it all, there is always room for hope.
