Like a jewel shimmering in a Midwest skyline, the Toledo Institute of Astronomy is the nation's premier center of astronomical discovery and a beacon of scientific learning for astronomers far and wide. Here, dreamy cosmologist George Dermont mines the stars to prove the existence of God. Here, Irene Sparks, an unsentimental scientist, creates black holes in captivity. George and Irene are on a collision course with love, destiny and fate. They have everything in common: both are ambitious, both passionate about science, both lonely and yearning for connection. The air seems to hum when they're together. But George and Irene's attraction was not written in the stars. In fact their mothers, friends since childhood, raised them separately to become each other's soulmates. When that long-secret plan triggers unintended consequences, the two astronomers must discover the truth about their destinies, and unravel the mystery of what Toledo holds for them -- together or, perhaps, apart.

Lydia Netzer is a surprising and refreshing new voice in magical realism. Her second novel tells the story of two souls destined for love since before their birth and their scheming mothers who designed them for each other. Cold and logical Diana and dreamer George make an interesting fated pair. An intriguing storyline punctuated with instances of little miracles and implausible events fits this novel perfectly into the magical realism genre. The characters are vibrant and interesting and the periodic flashbacks serve to flesh out their unusual and often tragic histories. Twists and surprises abound in this funny and charming novel; those who enjoyed Like Water for Chocolate will love How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky.
