The Golden Spider by Anne Renwick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
1884, and Lady Amanda Ravensdale is enrolled at medical school and working on a clockwork spider that can spin artificial nerves which she hopes can repair the damage down to her brother's legs. Sebastian Talbot, Fifth Earl of Thornton and lecturer and researcher in neurobiology is impressed with her work.
Mix the steampunk elements with romance, secret agents, foreign spies, betrayal and it makes for an enjoyable read.
