that I ve read this year hence the 5 star rating I m giving it It will be hard for any other books to be thoroughly loved in 2019 If you read and loved For All The Things We Cannot See, then this is another must read You won t be disappointed Believe it or not, this is Rachel Barenbaum s debut book She brings us to Russia and introduces us to the brother sister duo Miri and Vanya Russia is on the brink of war with Germany Things aren t easy, especially for science based practices This makes things difficult for Miri, who practices as a surgeon rare for women at this time , and Vanya, a physicist competing with the famous Albert Einstein to explain relativity Their practices bring many challenges and critiques, and with conscription brewing, their lives are turned upside down When Vanya goes missing, Miri is forced to face reality and fight for the brother she loves most.I really enjoyed that this book took us into Russia history and successfully explored the sciences without it being overkill it was artfully folded in I never thought that science in Russia would be such a conspiracy, or be thought of as witchcraft The other thing that really pulled me into this book was how much I related to Miri as a woman trying to prove herself as an equal without it being overdone No matter what, Miri fights for her beliefs and does her best even though she may feel like that s not enough I never cry, but I cried through the end of this book and I had chills It was just That Good.Clearly, I could go on and on about how much I loved this book Mark your calendars because it s coming out on May 14th You don t want to miss it Thank you so much to Netgalley and Grand Central Publishing for providing me with an advanced copy of this book I have voluntarily read this book and

culturally In a market that favors Germany, France, and England, I found this perspective refreshing and enjoyed losing myself in this chapter of less fictionalized world history.I loved the scientific scope of this story and how the course of the narrative acknowledged the realities of competition in the field I also liked how the story showcased commonly held superstitions and how traditional understandings prevented common people from accepting new understandings That said, my favorite storyline was Vanya s as it created a necessary bridge for modern readers to empathize and relate through prejudices that still exist than a century after this story takes place.I appreciate the time I spent with this piece and would have no trouble recommending it forward, but admit I struggled a bit with the pacing and encourage anyone reading this to understand the impact that had on my experience of the story flag 4 likesLike see review Jan 29, 2019 Karun rated it it was amazing

drama of impending war is the suspense she brings to the pursuit of physics as Vanya Abramov races to perfect Einstein s initial theories of relativity by completing the mathematical equations and confirming them through photographs of the solar eclipse that was visible in Russia in 1914 flag 1 likeLike see review Dec 13, 2018 Rachel rated it it was amazing Review from the author 1 likeLike
