As Lucy Muchelney watches her ex-lover’s sham of a wedding, she wishes herself anywhere else. It isn’t until she finds a letter from the Countess of Moth, looking for someone to translate a groundbreaking French astronomy text, that she knows where to go. Showing up at the Countess’ London home, she hoped to find a challenge, not a woman who takes her breath away.

Oh this was amazing. Full review to come closer to publishing date, but let's just say that it made me cry SEVERAL times in public today. A beautiful story of love and reclamation of self, of learning to put yourself first and healing from abuse. Also the astronomy details were breathtaking. I did have issues with the way the "dark moment" progressed, but honestly, I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of the book I don't even care that much

Lady scientists and artists taking down the patriarchy!!! It was amazing!!

(Which is all I have right now bc I’m waiting on an Amtrak train that was supposed to arrive at 830pm and now won’t get here until almost 11pm and I’ve been stuck in this crappy train station since about 5:30pm. This book kept me from murdering people.)

It's early in the 19th century and Lucy, who assisted in her late father's astronomy research (and actually did most of it as he aged), is nagged by her brother to find a husband. She finds work, and love, with Lady Catherine in London. These are two strong women who find happiness, both professional and personal, despite the obstacles in their way. This novel is the first in the "Feminine Pursuits" series.
