The greatest love story is the one you least expect . . .

Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. Yet she doesn't much care for her domineering father-in-law or the judgemental townsfolk of Baileyville, Kentucky. Restless and misunderstood, she yearns for escape and adventure, finding it in the defiant and unlikely sisterhood who bring books to the isolated and vulnerable of the wilderness. But when her father-in-law and the town suddenly turn against them, Alice fears she'll lose her freedom, friendships and the chance of unexpected love . . .

It's hard to imagine when you read of riding up into the mountains of Kentucky to deliver books that this is set at the end of the 1930s, until old Mr Van Kleve turns up in his car to berate all and sundry. A book about the beautiful outdoors, teams and friendship, and small-town bigotry. Thought it could all only end one way, but . . .
