  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews - Audio And Video Online Reviews 1991-2018
    In this powerful reminder that you can't always judge a book by it's cover, nineteen-year old Cussy Mary Carter, nicknamed Blueit, or Book Woman, is one of the finest librarians to travel under the 1930s Kentucky Pack Horse Library Project, braving treacherous Appalachian paths to deliver books to some of the poorer inhabitants of Troublesome Creek. But one thing her patrons can't ignore is Cussy's otherworldly blue-tinged complexion, and in a time and place where the color of one's skin matters, accepting herself for who she is (the last of the Kentucky Blue Skinned people) will be a hard mountain to climb. In this audio production, Schorr delivers a touching narrative performance, really striving to capture the essence of the Bluegrass State. Throughout the reading she maintains an authentic Southern lilt and uses subtle changes in her accent or pitch to differentiate among characters. Schorr especially brings Cussy's character to life, allowing her to become a lovable, almost tangible heroine the audience is sure to adore. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
