AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Selección del Club de Lectura Hello Sunshine de Reese Witherspoon


La autora de Yo antes de ti vuelve con una fabulosa historia sobre cinco extraordinarias mujeres que intentarán cambiar su mundo con el poder de los libros.
En 1937 Alice Wright toma la impulsiva decisión de abandonar Inglaterra para casarse con un apuesto y rico americano en Baileyville, Kentucky. Pero su nueva vida en la pequeña ciudad no es lo que esperaba hasta que conoce a Margery O'Hare, quien se ha propuesto llevar el milagro de los libros hasta el último rincón de la región. A caballo, atravesando montañas y bosques salvajes y luchando contra el prejuicio y la ignorancia, Alice, Margery y sus compañeras se convierten en bibliotecarias itinerantes al tiempo que descubren la libertad, la amistad, el amor y una vida que por fin les pertenece.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A REESE WITHERSPOON x HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK 

BESTSELLER DEL NEW YORK TIMES

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!

Set in Depression-era America, a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond, from the author of Me Before You and The Peacock Emporium 


Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England.  But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically.

The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. 

What happens to them--and to the men they love--becomes a classic drama of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. Though they face all kinds of dangers, they’re committed to their job--bringing books to people who have never had any, sharing the gift of learning that will change their lives.

Based on a true story rooted in America’s past, The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope.  At times funny, at others heartbreaking, this is a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.
