Lili’s fascination with all things scientific began in her childhood and continued into her adulthood. Her curiosity is not unexpected, however, considering how her mother was one of France’s greatest scientists. With Julie’s support, Lili manages to feed her knowledge through weekly trips to botany labs and scientific experiments. But science is not a suitable occupation for a French young lady; particularly one with no dowry and a mediocre heritage. If Emilie wants a husband and financial security, she must put aside her interests. Yet, somehow, she is unable to do so. In a desperate fight for freedom she escapes to her father’s house, and there learns more about her true identity than she ever believed possible.

For any reader who finds science boring or physics incomprehensible, FINDING EMILIE is ready to change your opinion. Corona’s book is a wonderful mix of science, history and romance that shows how the three are connected in more ways than many of us think. Every one of the novel’s characters are charming, particularly Lili. Corona does a wonderful job of portraying the stringency of pre-revolutionary French society and the repercussions that could develop from breaking social rules. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself scowling or laughing out loud while reading, or if you’re enticed to pick up the author’s other books. Enjoy this great read!
