Inhaltsangabe

Brought to you by Penguin.

'Alice had come halfway across the world to find that, yet again, she was considered wanting. Well, she thought, if that was what everyone thought, she might as well live up to it.'

England, late 1930s, and Alice Wright - restless, stifled - makes an impulsive decision to marry wealthy American Bennett Van Cleve and leave her home and family behind.

But stuffy, disapproving Baileyville, Kentucky, where her husband favours work over his wife and is dominated by his overbearing father, is not the adventure - or the escape - that she hoped for.

That is, until she meets Margery O'Hare, a troublesome woman - and daughter of a notorious felon - the town wishes to forget.

Margery's on a mission to spread the wonder of books and reading to the poor and lost - and she needs Alice's help.

Trekking alone under big open skies, through wild mountain forests, Alice, Margery and their fellow sisters of the trail discover freedom, friendship - and a life to call their own.

But when Baileyville turns against them, will their belief in one another - and the power of the written word - be enough to save them? 

Inspired by a remarkable true story, The Giver of Stars features five incredible women who will prove to be every bit as beloved as Lou Clark, the unforgettable heroine of Me Before You.

Nicht typisch Jojo Moyes

Gut gelesen, aber mit Längen. Dabei habe ich den üblichen Stil von Jojo Moyes nicht gefunden, aber vermisst! Schlichte Konstruktion, vieles vorhersehbar. Die Geschichte über ungewöhnliche Frauenleben in den USA in den 1930er Jahren hat mich erst am Ende gepackt, sicher auch durch die gute Sprecherin.

Wow! Loved it every second

I enjoyed this book very much. The story is so lovely. It emphasizes on friendship and loyalty and makes one reflect about the importance in life. I also think that the narrator/speaker did a wonderful job in getting into the different characters, bringing the book to life.
