I am currently reading Song of the Sea Maid by Rebecca Mascull.
I think I had a brother once.
So, the first line/paragraph doesn't give much away. But it is certainly intriguing! I am taking part in the blog tour for this next week, so it's time to get reading. The premise is so fascinating, an orphan in the 18th Century who dreams of being a scientist? All at once it sounds uplifting and devastating, and I can't wait.
