The Giver of Stars is the latest work from one of my favourite authors, Jojo Moyes.
Writer of the Me Before You series, Moyes can really take a storyline off the page and consume your imagination with her characters.
This book is set in Kentucky during the 1940’s and sees a group of women band together to share knowledge through their travelling library.
With strong characters and an unforgiving perception of a woman’s expected role, the novel will leave you feeling relieved to be a woman in the 21st century.
I found the book a little hard to get into at first, but as a big fan of Moyes, I decided to push through and was glad to have done so.
As I do after I finish any book, I jumped onto Google to research if there were future books in the works, or even a movie. I learned Universal has bought the rights to bring the book to the big screen in the coming year or so.
If you’re after a historical fiction with strong female characters, this book is for you.
I rate this book 3.5/5 stars.
