The Giver of Stars by JoJo Moyes. Is an excellent additional to this list. Throughly enjoyable and informative about the women of the Appalachian Mountains who started the horseback library.

I read Glass Castles and thought it was entertaining. However, having worked in social services my entire life, I don’t believe a word the woman wrote. At the time her book was published, memoirs were highly sought after. I think she submitted it as a novel and was told to resubmit it as a memoir in order to get it published. I found the entire book to be extremely incredulous. I challenge the writer to prove 1/10 of what she claims to be true.
