But nobody ever changed the world alone . . . In 1930s England, 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 discovers the freedom, friendship, and independence she's been looking for.
But not everyone approves of what they are doing, 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, based on a remarkable true story. ______________'An entertaining, immersive and moving read' THE SUNDAY TIMES 'I loved it and didn't want it to end!'
