This book was not at all what I thought it was going to be. if you like sci-fi, post apocolyptic tales, then you might enjoy this but I did not.

I've struggled through this for a few weeks and between the dark/depressing plot and my dislike of the main character, I'm going to have shelve this for a while.

An excellent book. I loved the way Morley dealt with time, and there were surprises at every turn. I didn't love the ending, but would definitely recommend this book!

If you enjoyed “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” then you need to check out this book. Based on a true story, “The Last Blue” is about the “blue people” of rural Kentucky, in particular a lady by the name of Jubilee Buford.

Jubilee faced discrimination, bullying, and social isolation, just because she was different. Her quest for love was rocky but successful. Morley writes the love story of Jubliee and writer/photographer Clay Havens with sensitivity and compassion. Jubilee’s story evoked strong emotions in me. What made people so cruel? Was it just ignorance? How could people witness the cruel acts against the blue people and say or do nothing to intervene? Why weren’t there more people with the conscience of Clay Havens?

This is a story of passion, connection, doing what is right, and courage.
