The novel explores themes such as poverty, resilience, grief, and hope, as Billie Jo and her family experience loss, illness, and other hardships. Through her journey, Billie Jo finds solace in her love for playing the piano, which becomes a source of strength and healing for her.

Out of the Dust has been praised for its evocative language, vivid imagery, and poignant portrayal of the human spirit. The novel has won numerous awards, including the Newbery Medal, and remains a popular and widely taught work of historical fiction.


"The way I see it, hard times aren't only about money, or drought, or dust. Hard times are about losing spirit, and hope, and what happens when dreams dry up."

"What can't be changed must be endured."
