#344 - The Movement of Stars ~ Amy Brill *NEW AUTHOR

Amazon > Books > Fiction > Historical > Romance
Publisher: Penguin

I was sent this book last week some time, and all I can say is thank you.

It is probably something that I would have never discovered under my own steam, but I am grateful that we found each other.

It's brilliantly and poetically written, with great attention to detail.

The pace of plot is gentle and meandering, but just adds to the overall enjoyment.

Wonderfully written characters, apparently Hannah is based on a the life of Maria Mitchell, and her friend Isaac Martin was pure invention.

A story of hope, love and industriousness, which was hindered by religion and prejudice. Not exactly a happy ending, but beautiful none the less - it's not always possible to get the "happy ever after" if it means giving up something along the way.

Highly recommend you give this one a go, a 5+ Star read.

You can find it at Amazon as either a paperback or Kindle version HERE.
