The spellbinding story of love, community and the power of reading from the bestselling author of Me Before You
______

THE GREATEST LOVE STORY IS THE ONE YOU LEAST EXPECT . . .

Alice Wright doesn't love her new American husband.

Nor her domineering father-in-law or the judgmental townsfolk of Baileyville, Kentucky.

Stifled and misunderstood, she yearns for escape and finds it in defiant Margery O'Hare and the sisterhood bringing books to the isolated and vulnerable.

But when her father-in-law and the town turn against them, Alice fears the freedom, friendship and the new love she's found will be lost . . .

The Giver of Stars

Second best read of 2020! I wasn’t sure I would like this when I started it, so different to other books by Jojo Moyes, but once the scene changed to Kentucky I was hooked. The disappointment of her marriage and the moving from one claustrophobic environment to another half way across the world is the catalyst for Alice to “do something”, anything to get her out of the house and away from her tyrannical father in law and rather gormless husband.
When the call goes out for women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s travelling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. She becomes part of a team
a travelling horsewomen who become known as the Packhorse Library.
What happens to these 5 intrepid women - and to the men they love - becomes an unforgettable adventure of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. These heroic women are committed to their job of bringing books to people who have never had access to them, and refuse to be cowed by men or convention. They face all kinds of dangers but despite hell or high water they are determined to stick to their job. Funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, it is a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, true love and what happens when we reach for the stars.
