Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve and leaves behind her stifling life in England for a new adventure in Kentucky. When a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt's new travelling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. The leader, Margery, and Alice will be joined by three diverse women and become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. What happens to these women - and to the men they love - becomes a classic drama of loyalty, justice, humanity, and passion.
