What is most important in life? John Goodricke thought he knew. Friends feared he paid too high a price for his rigid self regulation, but he was not to be deterred. Bright, confident and headstrong he was also completely deaf, not an easy condition to bear in his time. Eighteenth century England may have been an era of revelation, but there were limits to Enlightenment civility. For Goodricke, however, it was astronomy, not society, that provided his sustenance. But life's realities could not be ignored. Goodricke's Time is a true tale of friendship, self-discovery and the conflict with solitude and loneliness we all carry within.
