The Giver of Stars
by JoJo Moyes, 2019. Historical fiction.
During The Great Depression, five women from very different backgrounds overcome obstacles as they deliver books on horseback in remote regions of the Appalachian Mountains. Based on the real-life Pack Horse Library Project, a program of the Works Progress Administration program (1935-1943), the novel is a love letter to friendship, resilience, and learning.
