 All members welcome!

We are now meeting at Jackie's house, the full address will be on the email reminder sent out one day prior to the event.

This month we are discussing  The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes

England, late 1930s, and Alice Wright - restless, stifled - makes an impulsive decision to marry wealthy American Bennett van Cleve and leave her home and family behind. But stuffy, disapproving Baileyville, Kentucky, where her husband favours work over his wife, and is dominated by his overbearing father, is not the adventure - or the escape - that she hoped for. That is, until she meets Margery O'Hare - daughter of a notorious felon and a troublesome woman the town wishes to forget. Margery's on a mission.

Reviews

HER BEST NOVEL YET ― The Times

· Inspiring and wildly romantic ― Daily Mail Books of the Year

· Utterly enchanting ― Mail on Sunday

· An entertaining, immersive and moving read. The Giver of Stars is rip-roaring popular fiction but it is also a novel that celebrates education, intellectual curiosity and, above all, books and the knowledge, comfort, company and power that they can bring. Moyes shines a light on a historic footnote to pay tribute to women's work, endurance and female solidarity ― The Sunday Times
