Description

Volunteering for Eleanor Roosevelt's new traveling library in small-town Kentucky, an English bride joins a group of independent women whose commitment to their job transforms the community and their relationships.

1937. Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. When a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt's new traveling library, Alice signs on. The leader is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other women who become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. Though they face all kinds of dangers, they're committed to their job-- bringing books to people who have never had any, sharing the gift of learning that will change their lives. -- adapted from back cover.
