The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics


I have been looking forward to this book for some time. First of all, because COVER LOVE. AmIright? Second, it has a LADY SCIENTIST and is set in the Victorian era. If you've read any of my books, you probably know I'm partial to those (four lady scientists, one archivist, SO FAR). Third, I've been wanting to read an f/f love story for a while, and since this one ticked all the boxes for me, it seemed like a great one to start with. This book is charming, and it is feminist in the truest sense of the word. (Some pompous, patronizing male mathematicians get their comeuppance, too, so, bonus points.) I love the attention to detail, with lavish descriptions of the artist heroine's embroidery work. I also loved the twist at the end, and the resolution will leave you cheering.
