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 (The Sunday Times) 
With characters so real they feel like dear friends and a compelling storyline, this is a beautiful, special novel. I loved it and didn't want it to end! (Liane Moriarty)
What a wonderful novel. The Giver of Stars is the most sweeping, dramatic, richly evocative book, full of brilliantly feisty women. I whipped through the pages, utterly agog, pretty much feeling as though I was on a horse in 1930s Kentucky myself (Sophie Kinsella)
Epic (David Nicholls, bestselling author of One Day)
Timeless, Jojo Moyes' greatest work yet, and one of the most exquisitely-written - and absolutely compulsory - novels about women ever told. Brilliant and perfect and will remind you of why you read; even of why you breathe (Lisa Taddeo, bestselling author of Three Women)
Purest joy - even as it cheerfully breaks your heart. A go-get-em adventure about E Roosevelt's horseback librarians, it celebrates female friendship and the power of books (Damian Barr)
Both a love letter to reading and a hymn to female friendship, this is a tale packed full of romance, tension, and brilliantly drawn characters. Pure pleasure (Sunday Mirror)
Utterly enchanting (Mail on Sunday)
I loved this dashing adventure set in 1930s Kentucky, America. Intensely moving and crammed with romance and emotion, this is a full-pack-of-tissues novel. (Sun)
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)

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.
