The Movement of Stars
The Movement of Stars. Brill was inspired by the life of a 19th century astronomer and the novel she’s written places readers in a very well-drawn setting: a Quaker community on Nantucket Island in the mid-19th century. Protagonist Hannah Price comes of age in a closely knit faith community, learning to perform scholarly work, attracted to a black man limited by racism, constrained by family expectations, and striving to fulfill her potential. Brill presents Price as a very complete character, packed with all the conflicting emotions and challenges that each of us faces in our lives. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Movement of Stars from amazon.com.
