    PDF The Movement of Stars MOBI ↠ The Movement ePUB ☆ gigonog.me movement kindle, stars pdf, The Movement kindle, The Movement of Stars eBookCombining elements of history science astronomy and romance; Amy Brill attempts to bring to life the role of female astronomers in 1845 based on real life Maria Mitchell America’s first female astronomer in “The Movement of Stars” The initial description concerning “The Movement of Stars” is “sluggish” Although Brill has clearly conducted ample research regarding the history of the era science and astronomy; the story does not come alive Hannah the main character feels far away and doesn’t make any efforts to come closer This causes “The Movement of Stars” to read like a description of events versus any emotion or life involved Basically the storytelling feels monotoneBrill also misses on consistency as the story has a slow pace with an ebb and flow of plot which inhibits truly compelling the reader Oftentimes many pages pass without any progression in the story and also have ample choppiness However the sections involvi

    PDF The Movement of Stars MOBI ↠ The Movement ePUB ☆ gigonog.me movement kindle, stars pdf, The Movement kindle, The Movement of Stars eBookThis first novel by Amy Brill was inspired by a trip she made to Nantucket and a brief mention of a teenaged female astronomer from the first half of the 19th century For me this had some elements that I'd have a hard time not enjoying the setting of Nantucket an early feminist out of sorts in a time period that expects women to marry and to abandon intellectual pursuits and a character who works in a library Set during a very real period in uaker history where plain speech and dress was still the expectation and Friends could be d
