Praise

Praise for The Giver of Stars

“A captivating tale of love, friendship, and self-actualization.”
People

The Giver of Stars is a richly rewarding exploration of the depths of friendship, good men willing to stand up to bad and adult love. Moyes celebrates the power of reading in a terrific book that only reinforces that message.”    
USA Today

“Though she made her mark writing contemporary romance, Moyes proves just as adept at historical fiction. . . . The Giver of Stars is a celebration of love, but also of reading, of knowledge, of female friendship, of the beauty of our most rural corners, and our enduring American grit: the kind of true grit that can be found in the hills of Kentucky and on the pages of this inspiring book.”
The Washington Post

“Moyes paints an engrossing picture of life in rural America, and it’s easy to root for the enterprising librarians.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Bestselling author Jojo Moyes has a unique way of using her prose to make her readers feel great emotions – love, passion, sadness, and grief – and her latest novel, The Giver of Stars– does not disappoint in that respect.” 
Parade

“Moyes stays true to her narrative and takes full advantage of the sense of place she gained from repeated trips to the area . . . riveting. A stirring novel sure to please Moyes’s many fans.”
Star Tribune

“An epic journey of friendship, danger, and literacy. . . an ideal read.”
theSkimm

“With 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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Little Lies

“[A] dramatic, sweeping story. . . As well as creating wonderful strong characters, Jojo Moyes has an incredible eye for historical detail — I really felt as though I was riding over those Kentucky mountains with those women.”
Sophie Kinsella for Bustle

“Timeless, Jojo Moyes’s greatest work yet, and one of the most exquisitely-writtenand absolutely compulsorynovels about women ever told.” 
Lisa Taddeo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Three Women

“Epic in scope and fiercely feminist. . . an unforgettable story.” 
POPSUGAR

“Compelling. . . It’s an epic feminist adventure that candidly paints a community’s soul-searching with great humor, heartache, honesty, and love.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“Inspired by the history of the actual Pack Horse Librarians, Moyes depicts the courage and resourcefulness of these women in loving detail. The Giver of Stars is a tribute not just to the brave women who brought the light of knowledge in dark times, but also to the rejuvenating bond of women’s friendship.”
The Associated Press

“Moyes brings an often forgotten slice of history to life. . . the true power of the story is in the bonds between the women of the library. . . A love letter to the power of books and friendship.” 
Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 

“[An] homage to the power of reading and the strength of community. . . A must-read for women’s fiction.” 
Booklist (starred review)

“An adventure story grounded in female competence and mutual support, and an obvious affection for the popular literature of the early twentieth century, give this Depression-era novel plenty of appeal. . . . There’s plenty of drama, but the reader’s lasting impression is one of love.” 
Publishers Weekly

“Rich in history, with well-developed characters and a strong sense of place, this book will fit well in any library’s fiction collection. For fans of Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants or Catherine Marshall’s Christy.” 
Library Journal (starred review)
