Along a Storied Trail

By Ann H. Gabhart


Kentucky packhorse librarian Tansy Calhoun doesn’t mind the rough trails and long hours as she serves her Appalachian mountain community during the Great Depression. Yet she longs to find love like the heroines in the books she loves. When a charming writer comes to town, she thinks she might have found it—or is the perfect man actually closer than she thinks?

Perdita Sweet has called these mountains home for so long that she’s nearly as rocky as the soil around her small cabin. Long ago she thought she could love, but when the object of her affection up and married someone else, she stopped giving too much of herself away to others.

As is so often the case, it’s easier to see what’s best for others than to see what’s best for oneself. Perdita knows who Tansy should choose, but why would anyone listen to the romantic advice of an old spinster?

Book Takeaway:

Readers will take a trip back in time to the Great Depression years in the Eastern Kentucky Appalachian Mountains. They will experience new ideas and the very evident struggle to survive in hard times. They will see the love of books and learn more about the sturdy mountaineers.

Why the author wrote this book:

I enjoy setting my historical stories in Kentucky and I like going to the Appalachian Mountains for story ideas. So, when a reader sent me information about the packhorse librarians during the Great Depression, I was intrigued and began researching. I worked in history of the Depression era work programs and had some great characters come to life in my imagination.
