Read full description of the books Double Stars: The Story of Caroline Herschel:

After finishing Age of Wonder, I wanted to read more about Caroline Herschel and, well, this was the only book my local library had that centered on her. It’s more or less the same information about her as appeared in Age of Wonder, and I would highly recommend it for young girls. Think Jane Austen as a scientist to get an inkling of Miss Herschel’s wit and intelligence. Dubbed the Lady Astronomer in her day, she was the first woman in Europe to be paid for her work as a scientist. The book is the standard biography for the elementary-school set, but Caroline Herschel is worth reading about. Ten-year-old me is quite put out that there weren’t any biographies on her when I was a child. Quasi-recommended for adults; highly recommended for children.
