It's 1928. Alan Barber is in love with his best friend's girl.
Clyde Tombaugh is stuck at home farming crops - about as far from his dream of becoming an astronomer as is possible.
But by 1930, Alan will be enthralled in his life's greatest romance, and Clyde will have made one of the most significant astronomical discoveries of the twentieth century.
Based on a true story, this is an incredible tale of love, ambition and the fullest sweep of human emotion. Filled with a wondrous cast of fascinating characters and set in the last, vibrant days of the flapper era, it's a novel that will leave you as awestruck as the clear night sky.
