Summary, etc.:
"Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt's new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. Soon she will be joined by four other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky. Set in Depression-era America and based on a true story, The Giver of Stars is the breathtaking tale of their remarkable journey and a richly rewarding novel of women's friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond."-- Back cover.
