#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A REESE WITHERSPOON x HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK

“I’ve been a huge Jojo Moyes fan. Her characters are so compelling. . . It’s such a great narrative about personal strength and really captures how books bring communities together.” –Reese Witherspoon

From the author of Me Before You, set in Depression-era America, a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond.

Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England.  But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically.

The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky. 

What happens to them--and to the men they love--becomes an unforgettable drama of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. These heroic women refuse to be cowed by men or by convention. And though they face all kinds of dangers in a landscape that is at times breathtakingly beautiful, at others brutal, they’re committed to their job: bringing books to people who have never had any, arming them with facts that will change their lives.

Based on a true story rooted in America’s past, The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope and epic in its storytelling. Funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, it is destined to become a modern classic--a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond. 

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!

  • Sunni A.

    Great read! I almost didn't purchase it based on the title and the description but soooo glad I did! The story was captivating, inspiring, and educational all at the same time. The characters were extremely well developed. It was one of those books that I really looked forward to listening to every evening. The narrator was perfect for this book. Didn't want it to end!

  • Linda D.

    I’m not quite sure what the title has to do with the content of the book but that’s what made me buy it. The book itself is an easy read/listen and I enjoyed it. So much of our history is left untold because certain men saw no need to tell the contributions of women. In this story there are very good men and some not so good men. I’d give the book itself a 4 star rating just because it was written well and it was enjoyable.

  • Lorraine K.

    I thoroughly enjoyed. I found it a compelling read. The characters were realistic and I didn’t want it to end.

  • Kelley S.

    One of the best audio books I’ve listened to in a long time! Narrator was fantastic and story had me engrossed.

  • Anonymous

    Long read but entertaining. The narration was excellent and kept my attention as much as plot.
