"It's the spring of 1877 in Washington D.C., and at the U.S. Naval Observatory, great changes are afoot: historical, romantic, and scientific. When brillant Cynthia May- a Civil War widow whose beauty has been shadowed by worry and poverty- starts work as a human "computer" at the observatory, astronomer Hugh Allison has found just the partner he needs for a radiant, half-crazed scheme which will make him love forever in the annals of science and space. But first the two scientists must overcome the very earthly obstacles presented by powerful Senator Roscoe Conkling of New York and a fradulent astrologer who just might know thier future. Masterfully combining historical detail and startling invention, being Reconstruction-era Washington to life along with the ambitions of the burgeoning American nation, acclaimed novelist Thomas Mallon gives us a galvanizing story of earthly heartbreak and otherworldly triumph." -- Back cover.
