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.

Maas will love this YA version of Game of Thrones meets Marvel Comics' Runaways that readers are calling "intense and brutal and just a whirlwind of a ride."

Astrology and Reformation

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

Astrology and Reformation by Robin Bruce Barnes Book Summary:

During the sixteenth century, no part of the Christian West saw the development of a more powerful and pervasive astrological culture than the very home of the Reformation movement--the Protestant towns of the Holy Roman Empire. While most modern approaches to the religious and social reforms of that age give scant attention to cosmological preoccupations, Robin Barnes argues that astrological concepts and imagery played a key role in preparing the ground for the evangelical movement sparked by Martin Luther in the 1520s, as well as in shaping the distinctive characteristics of German evangelical culture over the following century. Spreading above all through cheap printed almanacs and prognostications, popular astrology functioned in paradoxical ways. It contributed to an enlarged and abstracted sense of the divine that led away from clericalism, sacramentalism, and the cult of the saints; at the same time, it sought to ground people more squarely in practical matters of daily life. The art gained unprecedented sanction from Luther's closest associate, Philipp Melanchthon, whose teachings influenced generations of preachers, physicians, schoolmasters, and literate layfolk. But the apocalyptic astrology that came to prevail among evangelicals involved a perpetuation, even a strengthening, of ties between faith and cosmology, which played out in beliefs about nature and natural signs that would later appear as rank superstitions. Not until the early seventeenth century did Luther's heirs experience a "crisis of piety" that forced preachers and stargazers to part ways. Astrology and Reformation illuminates an early modern outlook that was both practical and prophetic; a world that was neither traditionally enchanted nor rationally disenchanted, but quite different from the medieval world of perception it had displaced.

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. Gentle, non-assuming Genesis Chandler is supposed to be protecting the woods, as is her nature – she’s an energy worker – but since Granny’s death and her sisters leaving town, she’s lost sight of much in her life. 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.
