Inspiring and wildly romanticDaily Mail Books of the Year

Utterly enchanting Mail on Sunday

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

For years I've been a
huge Jojo Moyes fan. It's such a great narrative about personal strength and really captures how books bring communities together, especially for these women who are completely bonded by their love of literature ― Reese Witherspoon

genuinely entertaining book that's a perfect gift for people who need some escape from the everyday and just want to be absorbed in a really cracking story. Set in rural America in the 1930s, it's got a band of feisty characters who are funny and sweet with contemporary resonances to boot ― The best books to give this Christmas, Stylist

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

EpicDavid Nicholls, bestselling author of One Day

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 superbNina Potell, Prima

Dipped into this on Saturday and then simply
couldn't put it down. Superb characters, great story and sense of place. For me, her best yet. And I wept buckets over Me Before You! ― Fanny Blake

Touching on the still-burning issues of control, violence, poverty and racism, Moyes has created
a rollicking story that's perfect for long autumn nights. Enjoy . . . Stylist

Moyes' best yet . . . A stonker of a read. Laced with humour and heartache, it's addictiveSunday Post

While her novel is set in the midst of the Great Depression, Moyes crafts a tale that's

extraordinary story. This is the best thing she has written since Me Before You. Moyes writes with gusto and compassionMetro

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating
By Amazon Customer on 14 October 2019
Alice married to get away from her life in England, only to find herself in a cold relationship in America far from everything that she knows and understands, until one day she volunteers to join the newly established 'travelling library'. Here she finds the oddballs of her small town and they form an unlikely friendship group; their library opens a new world and a appreciation of reading to the children of the town and the people living in the surrounding area.
The book explores a host of subjects; (love and finding your "tribe" through genuine friendship.
It also highlights how reading affects people in a positive way: giving hope, comfort and the power to make informed decisions) it was a privilege to read.
