I loved this book. This is the first time I've ever read Steampunk. Brooke takes you into a world where an orphan struggles in an era where women didn't go to college to be an engineer for clockworks. She had training through with a clock repair man in a pawn shop. There she was discovered by a young man in need of her assistance while he worked on his final design for graduation. The story is magnificently done, and very well-written, lots of unexpeceted twists and turns. A girls real struggle in a world dominated by men, and her drive to do what was right. I see this making a movie for sure someday. It may even become a classic someday.
