The Librarian of Boone's Hollow

 Kim Vogel Sawyer delivered a wonderful book about determination, grit and perserverance.  Addie took a job to assist her parents.  She had to leave school and her family to accomplish this task.  It wasn't easy.  She never experienced this kind of life before.  She never expected that she would not be accepted.  She was an outsider.  

Addie was hard working and kind.  She was someone you would like to have for a friend.  She came to Kentucky to help her family.  By the end of the book, her kindness and dedication impacted so many in Boone's Hollow.

I suggest that Ms. Sawyer write a follow up book.  I would love to re-visit the area and find out the rest of the story. 

I received this ebook for free  from WaterBrook & Multnomah to review.

Kim Vogel Sawyer is a highly acclaimed, bestselling author with more than one million books in print in several different languages. Her titles have earned numerous accolades, including the ACFW Carol Award, the Inspirational Readers Choice Award, and the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence.

Kim lives with her retired military husband, Don, in central Kansas, where she continues to write gentle stories of hope. She enjoys spending time with her three daughters and her grandchildren.

The Librarian of Boone's Hollow

A traveling librarian ventures into the mining towns of Kentucky on horseback—and learns to trust the One who truly pens her story—in this powerful novel from the bestselling author of A Silken Thread.
During the Great Depression, city-dweller Addie Cowherd dreams of becoming a novelist and offering readers the escape that books had given her during her tragic childhood. When her father loses his job, she is forced to take the only employment she can find—delivering books on horseback to poor coal-mining families in the hills of Kentucky.
But turning a new page will be nearly impossible in Boone's Hollow, where residents are steeped in superstitions and deeply suspicious of outsiders. Even local Emmett Tharp feels the sting of rejection after returning to the tiny mountain hamlet as the first in his family to graduate college. And as the crippled economy leaves many men jobless, he fears his degree won’t be worth much in a place where most men either work the coal mine or run moonshine.
As Addie also struggles to find her place, she’ll unearth the truth about a decades-old rivalry. But when someone sets out to sabotage the town’s library program, will the culprit chase Addie away or straight into the arms of the only person who can help her put a broken community back together?
