No one has brought up the fact that the author herself has uncovered a real mystery concerning Isaac Newton's involvement in alchemy, the closely researched Trinity deaths & the elusive 17th century mathematician & fellow of King's College, Ezekiel Foxcroft. Her suspicions about Newton are fascinating & believable; her post-novel information on Newton including his list of his own sins, a well-written time line and very useful bibliography about Newton & other related subjects such as the Great Plague made me want to do some of my own sleuthing. I am a believer, Professor Stott!

Well-written book about a woman finishing a biography of Isaac Newton for the biographer who drowned suspiciously. Stott intertwines a present-day love story with an ancient mystery. Most of all I enjoyed reading about Newton and how driven he was to experiment with light and color, even as the plague was approaching Cambridge.

The reviews were good for this book, which is a historical mystery loosely based on Isacc Newton including his alchemy and tenure at Cambridge University. The modern day is juxtaposed with the past quite well. An enjoyable read, if a little predictable.
