The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes
This is a dazzler of a story about taking risks, female friendship and the extreme power of books and stories (need we say more?) With heroines you'll fall in love with, and with all the heart and soul of any Jojo Moyes novel, you'll be racing through the pages to find out how it all pans out. Alice has married, is bored, and signs up to volunteer at a travelling library, against her husband's wishes. What follows is a whirlwind of adventure, freedom and romance. You'll love every line.
