The Weather Woman



dmg media (UK)


Sally Gardner Head of Zeus £20 Thames frost fairs, automata, feminism and a charismatic woman who can predict the weather make up this beguiling tale of science and the supernatural. Unconventional Neva Friezland can foresee storms and snow, but is unable to clear a path through the strictures of Regency England. Adopting male attire, she attends salons and lectures, and falls in love with a charismatic young man. It’s historical romance imbued with a modern sensibility and a magical sense of place.
