The Light Among Us: The Elizabeth Carne Story, Cornwall by Jill George is a remarkable historical novel about a brilliant woman, Elizabeth Catherine Thomas Carne. Among other things, Elizabeth Carne (1817–1873) was a published geologist, ecologist, industrial psychologist, philanthropist, poet, and friend of many luminary thinkers. This intelligent and gifted yet modest woman deserves to be known to a wide audience. In this book, the author shares Elizabeth Carne's life story and presents her greatest accomplishments that were most uncommon for a woman during that time. The novel is a stunning tribute to her, an extraordinary woman from a small, remote fishing town and port who started to pave the way for other women and the less fortunate around the world at only fifteen years of age.
The Light Among Us: The Elizabeth Carne Story, Cornwall by Jill George is a wonderful, well-researched historical work told with both great care and vivid detail. Jill George has elegantly written this inspiring and marvelous story of freedom, purpose, meaning, love, diversity, and inclusion. The book illuminates the extraordinary life of an exceptional, brave, fascinating woman who had to continue her father's legacy of wealth and philanthropy while struggling to gain credibility as a woman in a field dominated by males. I fell in love with Elizabeth Carne's determination to make a superior impact on society and to build up her community, her nation, and the world. This is an unforgettable, captivating read that will definitely delight fans of historical fiction and romance.
