Historical fiction is written in verse that reminds us of the value of a strong father, daughter relationship. The book introduces three girls over three different centuries and describes how their childhood curiosities shaped their lives.

I loved this book much more than I thought I would. I'd wanted a regular biography but I am glad I read this book. The poetry brought these characters to life much more than a recitation of facts. The writing is amazing. So are the women.

A good example of narrative nonfiction - stories of three women of history who made enormous contributions to science, told through their personal experiences of their life and times. Recommended by a friend, I enjoyed learning about Maria Sibylla Merian, Mary Anning, and Maria Mitchell. I'd read about Mary Anning in Remarkable Creatures, but felt that her story in this book was just as thorough as in the adult novel.
