Inspired by a remarkable true story that captivated the #1 New York Times bestselling author, THE GIVER OF STARS features five extraordinary women and their unforgettable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond.

“In THE GIVER OF STARS, Jojo Moyes has written a powerful novel of strong women set against a truly American backdrop—a little-known slice of history that has given her a canvas richer than any she has created before, and in turn, she has written the book of her life—one destined to become a classic,” says Pamela Dorman, Publisher, Pamela Dorman Books
