The Stargazer's Sister

The Stargazer's Sister Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Stargazer's Sister by Carrie Brown Book Summary:

From the acclaimed author of The Last First Day, here is a beautiful new period novel: a nineteenth-century story of female empowerment before its time, based on the life of Caroline Herschel, sister of the great composer and astronomer William Herschel and an astronomer in her own right. This exquisitely imagined novel opens as William rescues Caroline from a life of drudgery in Germany and brings her to England and a world of music making and stargazing. Lina, as Caroline is known, serves as William’s assistant and the captain of his exhilaratingly busy household. William is generous, wise, and charismatic, an obsessive genius whom Lina adores and serves with the fervency of a beloved wife. When William suddenly announces that he will be married, Lina watches her world collapse. With her characteristically elegant prose, Carrie Brown creates from history a compelling story that interweaves familial collaboration and conflict with a haunting exploration of the sublime beauty of astronomy and our small but essential place within a vast and astonishing cosmos. Through Lina’s trials and successes we witness the dawning of an early feminist consciousness—a woman struggling to find her own place among the stars. From the Hardcover edition.

The Stargazer's Sister Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Stargazers by Allan Chapman Book Summary:

The period from 1500-1700 saw an unprecendented renaissance in astronomy and the understanding of the heavens. In this magnificent tour de force, scientific historian Dr Allan Chapman guides us through two hundred years of mapping the stars. He shows how Copernicus, Galileo, Tycho Brahe, and Kepler were all part of a huge movement, which included many churchmen, questing for knowledge of the skies. Chapman explores whether Galileo and his ilk were so unusual for their time, bright sparks of knowledge in a sea of ignorance. Or were contemporary Popes, churchmen, and rulers actually fascinated by astronomy, and open to new ideas? Within these pages Copernicus and Galileo find company with Jesuit missionary astronomers in China, Calvinist physicists in Leiden, Bishop John Wilkins's Flying Chariot destined for the moon, Johannes Hevelius, Jeremiah Horrocks, Robert Hooke, Sir Isaac Newton, the early Royal Society, and the Revd James Bradley, who finally detected the earth's motion in space in 1728.

The Stargazer’s Scrapbook by Esther Lac Book Summary:

If you could tamper with your memories and rewrite them in your favour, would you? It’s actually a rather easy thing to do. Memories aren’t made purely from our interactions in the physical world. When we muse with our imaginations, we’re creating memories, too. When reality and fantasy intermixes over time, how can you draw the line between what’s real and what isn’t? In her early years, Lisanna Spring was raised by her grandmother, a memory collector who loved to tell stories with impeccable vividness to anyone who would care to listen. Often times it would be to an audience of one; Lisanna. When Lisanna’s grandma lost in a fight with Alzheimer’s disease and was forced to trade her beloved babysitting role for an ironic bedridden ending, she leaves behind a beautiful scrapbook as a memento for her granddaughter. After a period of hysterical denial, Lisanna discovers the dying wish her grandma had left for her in the scrapbook and intends to fulfill it by becoming a collector of more than just memories.

Highlife Saturday Night

Highlife Saturday Night by Nate Plageman Book Summary:

Highlife Saturday Nightcaptures the vibrancy of Saturday nights in Ghana—when musicians took to the stage and dancers took to the floor—in this penetrating look at musical leisure during a time of social, political, and cultural change. Framing dance band "highlife" music as a central medium through which Ghanaians negotiated gendered and generational social relations, Nate Plageman shows how popular music was central to the rhythm of daily life in a West African nation. He traces the history of highlife in urban Ghana during much of the 20th century and documents a range of figures that fuelled the music's emergence, evolution, and explosive popularity. This book is generously enhanced by audiovisual material on the Ethnomusicology Multimedia website.

Genesis by Dale Mayer Book Summary:

Genesis and her sisters are the last of her maternal line, the last of the stargazers – except she is a dropout in the energy worker talent department.

While she was living with blinders on, someone else took advantage. Connor has been called in to investigate the sacred forest. Something odd is happening to the reserve, and it’s affecting the town’s energy source. That also means it’s connected to the sacred pools. He’s got energy problems himself and needs Genesis to get to the bottom of this problem. Genesis has no love for Connor. His fault. He loved her and left her, not realizing he’d left the best part of himself behind – his heart. Can they work together to find out who is destroying their energy reserve – a resource that’s key to the life of all who live on Glory? Their survival depends on it.
