THE SPELLBINDING SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF ME BEFORE YOU'
'Perfect for long autumn nights' Stylist
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...
The Giver of Stars is a mesmerizing tale of female friendship, romance, and the wonder of books and reading, inspired by a remarkable true story.
