Audio Book Summary

LOSE YOURSELF IN THIS SPELLBINDING STORY OF LOVE, COMMUNITY AND THE POWER OF READING: THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER & REESE WITHERSPOON BOOK CLUB PICK FROM THE AUTHOR OF ME BEFORE YOU

'Inspiring and wildly romantic' DAILY MAIL BOOKS OF THE YEAR

'Her best novel yet. The most appealing thing is Moyes' wonderful way with romance' THE TIMES

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.

Finally, Alice 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?

Discover what happens when we stand together in this mesmerising tale of female friendship, romance, and the wonder of reading, inspired by a remarkable true story.

    And she did it again. Jojo Moyes brings characters to life right in my car. "The Giver of Stars" has everything. The rich, powerful men, that think that they can do whatever they want without consequences. The strong, fighting women that have to face challenges over and over again. And it is especially the female characters that make the story. It is all about friendship, decision making, social status, and - of course - love. If you haven't read or listened to this book yet, you are missing out.

    Really didn’t think I would enjoy this. Stopped a few times, but persevered. Fell in love with the characters, partly due to the narrator. Great book to escape to

    Absolutely loved this cannot recommend it enough. Had the usual romantic interest but had more substance to it. Fantastic characters and wonderful supportive relationships between the women as well as having a very interesting historical setting. Amazing narrator the best I have heard yet.
