A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness
I loved this book! I must admit that I was concerned when I first started that it would be more romance than I typically enjoy. Instead, the foundation laid in the first part of the book around the relationship between the two main characters is key to the rest of the story. I love the historical references and the glimpse into academic research. This book is very obviously the first in a series and I am looking forward to the next.
