A Sunday Times bestseller and Reese Witherspoon book club pick.
Based upon a true story, this standalone gem from the author of the Me Before You sequence spins an inspiring tale of companionship and determination during the dog days of the Great Depression. Tracking five incredible women across the dust bowls and prairies of America, The Giver of Stars is a hymn to friendship and the eternal wonder of books.
The greatest love story is the one you least expect...
Alice Wright doesn't love her new American husband.
Nor her domineering father-in-law or the judgmental townsfolk of Baileyville, Kentucky.
Stifled and misunderstood, she yearns for escape and finds it in defiant Margery O'Hare and the sisterhood bringing books to the isolated and vulnerable.
But when her father-in-law and the town turn against them, Alice fears the freedom, friendship and the new love she's found will be lost . . .
