Review: The Giver of Stars

The Giver of Stars The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A very enjoyable read. Alice, an English woman meets an American named Bennet who is travelling with his father and they fall in love and marry, very quickly. Alice returns to the US, Kentucky, with Bennet and his father but very soon she becomes disenchanted with life as a lady in Kentucky. As well, her marriage is not going as she had hoped.

As an aside, an historical event that was started by Eleanor Roosevelt was taking place in the Kentucky hills. A mobile library, women had routes to follow to take books to the isolated farms and homesteads. It was a wonderful undertaking and so appreciated by most of the inhabitants.

It is so good when as well as being an enjoyable story, a book can tell you things that you previously had no knowledge of.

A great read.
