Kowal is a great storyteller, but what brings me back again and again is the way in which she writes relationships. Elma and Nathaniel are the heart and soul of this novel and their relationship is so perfectly rendered on the page. It's not a perfect relationship—they argue and keep things from each other—but it's perfect in the ways in which they work through their problems and support each other. This is an alternate history novel about women in the space program, but it's the relationships—not just that between Elma and Nathaniel, but Elma's friendships and familial relationships and work relationships—that breathe life into the pages and elevate this novel to something more than just a "what if?" about women in space in the '50s.
