Week 36: Cousin Kate and The Machine's Child





Cousin Kate, by Georgette Heyer



This is one of Heyer's famed Regency novels, and it's one I enjoyed. Kate is, of course, a poor and independent orphan of gentle birth.

The Machine's Child, by Kage Baker



Another installment in the Company series, which is still going strong.
