Title: The Giver of Stars  

Author: JoJo Moyes 


Alice Wright is hopeful that her marriage to an American will bring her fun and adventure, but she finds living with her husband and father-in-law in rural Kentucky is not what she bargained for.  

Her hopes and dreams are slowly dying, but a renewed vigor overcomes her when she volunteers to become a member of the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. The traveling librarians move through the backwoods of Kentucky on horseback – oftentimes met with resistance and, in some cases, dangerous situations. 

This book highlights the hard work the traveling librarians did for their community, helping to change the lives of everyone around them. The WBH Library of Hartselle has this title in both book and audiobook format.
