"I’m not sure why I’ve never read a Jojo Moyes novel before now, but I was drawn in by the story of a traveling library, and I’m so glad I was! Set in rural Kentucky, English transplant Alice is bored to tears with the stifling life of a wealthy married woman. When the chance comes to work for the Horseback Library, Alice jumps at the chance. Teaming up with sassy, free- thinker Margery, they, along with three other women (and the men they love) work together and fight against the odds in small town politics and small town minds. A great read for book lovers of all types-a little romance, a lot of determination, and believable strong female characters."

“In the late 1930s, the Works Progress Administration developed a number of projects intended to provide employment opportunities for unemployed artists, writers, and craftsmen. One of those projects was the Pack Horse Library Initiative, in which mounted horsewomen picked their way along snowy hillsides and through muddy creeks with a simple goal: to deliver reading material to Kentucky’s isolated mountain communities. In The Giver of Stars, Moyes has brought to life the amazing, funny, adventurous stories of a few of these trailblazing women. Historical fiction lovers will devour this story of a little-known piece of U.S. history.”
