The story of Galileo's struggles with the church are nicely balanced by his relationship with his daughter and her own development into a strong woman. There is little drama--even his "trial" is reduced to transcript excerpts--but it it reflects an oddly current duel between science and religion.

Dava Sobel has written a beautiful biography about Galileo...she masterfully relives the religious and political battles surrounding his findings and discoveries...and his daughter's letters will make you sit back in awe at the beauty of her writings to her father.
