Full description of the book The Movement of Stars:

Gorgeous . . . Sings with insights about love, work and how we create our own families Amy Brill shines in her sparkling debut novel. Vanity Fair Brill's rich detail and research are hugely impressive; it's easy to envision the scenes she sees. USA Today Beautifully written and richly characterized. Kirkus (starred review) A terrifically poised and captivating debut." Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife A love story set in 1845 Nantucket, between a female astronomer and the unusual man who understands her dreams. It is 1845, and Hannah Gardner Price has lived all twenty-four years of her life according PDF to the principles of the Nantucket Quaker community in which she was raised, where simplicity and restraint are valued above all, and a woman s path is expected to lead to marriage and motherhood. But up on the rooftop each night, Hannah pursues a very different and elusive goal: discovering a comet and thereby winning a gold medal awarded by the King of Denmark, something unheard of for a woman. And then she meets Isaac Martin, a young, dark-skinned whaler from the Azores who, like herself, has ambitions beyond his expected station in life. Drawn to his ePub intellectual curiosity and honest manner, Hannah agrees to take Isaac on as a student. But when their shared interest in the stars develops into something deeper, Hannah s standing in the community begins to unravel, challenging her most fundamental beliefs about work and love, and ultimately changing the course of her life forever. Inspired by the work of Maria Mitchell, the first professional female astronomer in America, The Movement of Stars is a richly drawn portrait of desire and ambition in the face of adversity."
