The Illumination of Ursula Flight | Anna-Marie Crowhurst
12 posts | 5 read | 2 reading | 32 to read
Born on the night of an ill-auguring comet just before Charles II's Restoration, Ursula Flight has a difficult future written in the stars. Against the custom of the age she begins an education with her father, who fosters in her a love of reading, writing and astrology. Following a surprise meeting with an actress, Ursula yearns for the theatre and thus begins her quest to become a playwright despite scoundrels, bounders, bad luck and heartbreak.

Another great choice from the Rare Birds Book Club. “The Illumination of Ursula Flight” is a fun, quirky tale of a young girl growing up in the 17th century. Very different to what I would normally choose but I enjoyed it and it‘s 4 stars from me.

After what felt like the longest January ever, February is flying by!

I really loved the last Rare Birds Book Club book, “Dear Mrs Bird” and was looking forward to seeing what February had in store. See my latest blog post to learn more about this month's book! 📚

I heard Simon Savidge talk about this on booktube and got distracted from my TBR. I think he described it as Flavia de Luce growing up in 17th century England. Just my thing! This debut author has a light touch and a great sense of humour. Although it touches on some sad moments, it never gets dark - a feel-good book if you like historical novels and mischievous girls not giving in to societal rules. 3.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

LeahBergen Oh, good! I have this waiting on my shelf. 👍🏻 9mo
Centique @LeahBergen Yay! I think you‘ll enjoy it! 9mo

This is such an entertaining and fun romp set during the reign of King Charles II. I loved Ursula and her quirky voice. A very original and quite unusual tale which is beautifully and thoughtfully written with both sad and amusing moments. A captivating, easy to read and enchanting drama which I applaud with vigour. I do so hope there will be an encore from this new author. Unique!
