 The Giver of Stars, by JoJo Moyes, is based on a true story rooted in America’s past.

Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic.  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.  She will be joined by four 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.
