Synopsis

Maria Mitchell The Soul of an Astronomer by Beatrice Gormley

In the mid-1800s, a turbulent time when women were often thought to be unworthy of higher education, Maria Mitchell rose above the prejudices of her day to become America's first professional woman astronomer. This exciting biography tells the story of Maria Mitchell's life, her amazing achievements, and her faith that saw God's handiwork in the heavens.

Reviews

Gormley successfully paints a picture of a world that failed to mold Mitchell to its standards, focusing on the telling details that bring the story to life. Inspiring and incisive. -- Kirkus Reviews

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
