DON'T MISS THE STANDALONE NEW NOVEL FROM JOJO MOYES, THE NO. 1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ME BEFORE YOU, AFTER YOU AND STILL ME 'A wonderful novel. The Giver of Stars is the most sweeping, dramatic, richly evocative book, full of brilliantly feisty women' Sophie Kinsella 'Alice had come halfway across the world to find that, yet again, she was considered wanting. Well, she thought, if that was what everyone thought, she might as well live up to it.' 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, a troublesome woman - and daughter of a notorious felon - the town wishes to forget. Margery's on a mission to spread the wonder of books and reading to the poor and lost - and she needs Alice's help. Trekking alone under big open skies, through wild mountain forests, Alice, Margery and their fellow sisters of the trail discover freedom, friendship - and a life to call their own. But when Baileyville turns against them, will their belief in one another - and the power of the written word - be enough to save them? Inspired by a remarkable true story, The Giver of Stars features five incredible women who will prove to be every bit as beloved as Lou Clark, the unforgettable heroine of Me Before You.

Autorenporträt
"Romanschreiberin. Mutter von drei Kindern. Besitzerin altersschwacher Pferde. Von denen keines von der Londoner Polizei eingesetzt wurde." So beschreibt sich Jojo Moyes auf ihrem Profil des Kurznachrichtendienstes "Twitter". Die Londoner Schriftstellerin arbeitete lange für die "Sunday Morning Post" in Hongkong und den Londoner "Independent", bevor ihr 2003 mit "Sheltering Rain" der literarische Durchbruch gelang und sie sich hauptberuflich dem Schreiben widmen konnte. 1969 in London geboren, studierte sie am Londoner Royal Holloway und Bedford New College Journalistik und erhielt 1992 ein vom "Independent" gestiftetes Stipendium, mit dem ihr der Einstieg in den Journalismus gelang.
Jojo Moyes, die ihre Leser "etwas spüren lassen möchte", wurde für ihre Bücher gleich zwei Mal mit dem "Pure-Passion"-Preis für den besten Liebesroman des Jahres ausgezeichnet: 2004 für "Foreign Fruit" und 2011 für den Roman "The Last Letter From Your Lover", dessen "selig anmutender" Schluss von der Jury besonders gelobt wurde.
In "Ein ganzes halbes Jahr" (Rowohlt, 2013) erzählt Moyes die bitterromantische Liebesgeschichte des ungewöhnlichen Paares Lou und Will und setzt sich dabei auch mit dem Thema Sterbehilfe auseinander.
Jojo Moyes lebt mit ihrem Mann, dem Journalisten Charles Arthur, und ihren drei Kindern auf einer Farm in Essex.
Rezensionen
What a wonderful novel. The Giver of Stars is the most sweeping, dramatic, richly evocative book, full of brilliantly feisty women. I whipped through the pages, utterly agog, pretty much feeling as though I was on a horse in 1930s Kentucky myself Sophie Kinsella
