The Giver of Stars (2019) by JoJo Moyes is a work of women’s fiction that can also be categorized as historical fiction. Not long after its publication, The Giver of Stars became embroiled in controversy when another author, Kim Michele Richardson, noted similarities between her book about the WPA Pack Horse Librarians, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, and Moyes’s novel.
First, the controversy. Much has been made of the similarity between this book, THE GIVER OF STARS, by Jojo Moyes, and THE BOOK WOMAN OF TROUBLESOME CREEK, by Kim Michele Richardson, which came out just five months before this one. Both books take place in Kentucky and deal with the Pack Horse Library Project, which was inspired by Eleanor Roosevelt and tasked with bringing books to remote.
The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes combines the history of the Pack Horse Library Project with a story of strong women coming together to support each other. The book highlights the role of women, racial divisions, prejudice, poverty, and the hardships of life in Kentucky at that time. At a point, the book takes a much more melodramatic turn. I wish the story had remained that of the quiet.
