The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes

British Alice Wright escapes her life by marrying American Bennett Van Cleve and moving to small-town Kentucky. Soon she realizes that she not only has to deal with her detached husband, but his meddling and overbearing father. Seeking another escape, she joins the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky, lead by strong-willed, confident Margery. I had never heard of packhorse librarians so I loved learning about them and what they did to get books to people. Those challenges reshape Alice.
