And I wept buckets over Me Before You! * Fanny Blake * Based on a true story of the real Horseback Librarians of Kentucky this was a truly joyous and divine read. The rich, determined, extraordinary characters consumed me. The history, the setting; everything about this glorious book is superb * Nina Potell, Prima * The Giver of Stars by JoJo Moyes is purest joy - even as it cheerfully breaks your heart. A go-get-em adventure about E Roosevelt's horseback librarians, it celebrates female friendship and the power of books * Damian Barr * Timeless, Jojo Moyes' greatest work yet, and one of the most exquisitely-written - and absoloutely compulsory - novels about women ever told. Brilliant and perfect and will remind you of why you read; even of why you breathe * Lisa Taddeo, bestselling author of Three Women * 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 * What a wonderful novel. The Giver of Stars is the most sweeping, dramatic, richly evocative book, full of brilliantly feisty women. I whipped through the pages, utterly agog, pretty much feeling as though I was on a horse in 1930s Kentucky myself * Sophie Kinsella *
