It’s the late 1800’s, and the stars hold more than mystery for Annie Jump Cannon.
In this three-part novella based partly on the experiences of an actual historical character, Annie finds herself heading west to be the mail-order bride of a fellow astronomer as they build a new observatory and a try to make a new life based on their love of the stars.

Annie Jump Cannon - She’s the daughter of a shipbuilder father and a mother who nurtured her love of astronomy. After college, she finds herself working for an unappreciative boss, and knows she must find a new way to use her formidable gift for science!

Willamina Fleming - Annie’s assistant and best friend, Willa takes matters into her own hands and replies to an advertisement for a mail order bride for her Annie, with shocking results.

Clyde Herschel - A preeminent astronomer at the University of Denver, Clyde receives a reply from his ad, and he gets the surprise of his life when Annie Jump Cannon replies to his advertisement!

The two women travel West together, and Annie and Clyde work to build a new observatory in the remote town of Last Chance, and in the process their love for the stars--and for each other--grows as big as the Colorado night sky.

Will Annie find love and fulfillment in Last Chance?

Will her newly discovered star be recognized?

Will Annie and Clyde successfully build their new observatory, or will unforeseen circumstances keep them from their dream?

Can Willamina find a husband of her own with Clyde's mysterious astronomer friend?

Find the answers to these questions and more as you learn about these fascinating women of science and history as they seek out love, new careers and new lives in the rugged but fast-growing paradise that is Last Chance, Colorado.
