    Auction house appraiser Jude leaves London for her dream job at Starbrough Hall, an estate in the countryside, examining and pricing the manuscripts and instruments of an 18th-century astronomer. She is welcomed by Chantal Wickham, and Jude feels close to the old woman at once. Hard times have forced the Wickham family to sell the astronomer's work, their land, and with it, the timeworn tower that lies nearby. Jude's arrival brings a host of childhood memories. She meets Euan, a famed writer and naturalist who lives in the cottage at the foot of the tower, where Jude's grandfather once lived.

    Story

    This is a fun, engaging read. Revelations keep appearing until nearly the final page. If you tend to be archival in your own research and enjoy the kinds of discoveries that come from exploring old houses, books and public records you will enjoy this book. The author engages us in the science of astronomy through historical revelations and the romance of stargazing. A new favorite for me.
