Staff Reviews

Although her progress in other feminine arts lag, 1900 proves to be an eventful year for aspiring scientist Calpurnia Tate and her family in Fentress, Texas. Callie Vee’s observation of a seagull 200 miles inland is instrumental in warning Houston, Galveston, and Corpus Christi of an impending major storm. Devastation in Galveston brings a cousin and a visiting veterinarian to town, opening Calpurnia’s eyes to the possibilities of making money, assisting the new vet, even attending university, all things unheard of for respectable young ladies. Irrepressible Calpurnia will not let conventional wisdom stand her way. Charming, engaging, funny, and rich in language, readers will delight in Calpurnia’s successes, empathize with her struggles, and turn the last page in this sequel, yearning for a third in the series.
