The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics (2019)
Olivia Waite

Lucy Muchelny is responsible for the mathematical aspects of her father's famous publications in astronomy, but as this is the 19th century she receives no credit for that contribution. Desperate for work after his death, she is fortunate to be hired by the recently widowed Countess of Moth to translate a French treatise on celestial mechanics. Although it begins purely as business, their relationship soon grows into a romance.
