Publisher Description

When her lover dies suddenly, all Catherine has left is her work. In an act of compassion her manager at London’s Swinburne Museum gives her a very particular project: a box of intricate clockwork parts that constitute a nineteenth-century automaton, a beautiful mechanical bird. It’s an object made of equal parts magic, love, madness and science, a delight that contains the seeds of our age’s downfall. Once Catherine discovers the diary of the man who commissioned it, one obsession merges into another.

Good chemistry

I was totally captured by this intriguing book. I enjoyed the parallel stories, the humanity and the twists and surprises. It's quite a voyage for both the emotions and the intellect.
