The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes

The greatest love story is the one you least expect…

Alice is stifled, bored, and misunderstood.

So when she meets wealthy and handsome American, Bennett Van Cleve, she is quickly swept off her feet.

Marrying him and moving to America seems like a great adventure – but life as a newlywed in stuffy Baileyville, Kentucky, is not at all what she hoped for.

Until, that is, she responds to a call for volunteers to start a travelling library, surprising herself by saying yes, before her husband can say no…

Led by feisty and rebellious Margery O’Hare, this unlikely group of women travel far and wide on their mission to bring books and reading to those that need it, and Alice finally finds the freedom, friendship and love that she’s been looking for.

But not everyone approves of what they are doing, especially her new father-in-law.  And when the town turns against them, will their belief in each other and their work be enough?

The Giver of Stars is a mesmerising tale of female friendship, romance, and the wonder of books and reading, inspired by a remarkable true story.

Peer & Press Reviews

Based on a true story of the real Horseback Librarians of Kentucky this was a truly joyous and divine read.  The rich, determined, extraordinary characters consumed me.  The history, the setting; everything about this glorious book is superb.

Nina Potell, Prima

For years I’ve been a huge Jojo Moyes fan.  It’s such a great narrative about personal strength and really captures how books bring communities together, especially for these women who are completely bonded by their love of literature.

Reese Witherspoon

An entertaining, immersive and moving read.  The Giver of Stars is rip-roaring popular fiction… but it is also a novel that celebrates education, intellectual curiosity and, above all, books and the knowledge, comfort, company and power that they can bring.  Moyes shines a light on a historic footnote to pay tribute to women’s work, endurance and female solidarity.
