Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In Kim Michele Richardson’s beautifully and authentically rendered The Book Woman’s Daughter she once again paints a stunning portrait of the raw, somber beauty of Appalachia, the strong resolve of remarkable women living in a world dominated by men, and the power of books and sisterhood to prevail in the harshest circumstances. A critical and profoundly important read for our time. Badassery womanhood at its best!” Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author
