The Falling Sky by Pippa Goldschmidt

This was recommended to my by a friend. I am not sure I would otherwise have picked it up. It is a pretty good novel, about a young astronomy academic and her emotional life, confused by the death of her older sister when they were children. It is poetic at times, and very nicely written. The bits about being an astronomer are good fun. It peters out a little, as if the writer wasn’t quite able to pull the strands, good as they are, together.
