Household Gods by Judith Tarr, Harry Turtledove

Crane Cavanaugh is many things budding scientist, sharp observer of the world, and clear-eyed casualty of poverty, abusive parents, and a grim physical deformity. Separated from the sister and brother who tried to protect her in infancy, shes assigned to a convent by welfare workers. Crane bristles at being taught science from the Bible, and is soon put up for adoption. Reborn as Princess Hopkins by an adoring, middle-class, adoptive mother, Crane is befriended by a public school science teacher who becomes her mentor. Princess/Crane inhabits parallel worlds, using her scientific precocity and formidable intellect to juggle sobering deficits in nurture, stunted emotional development, and the inevitable disasters that derive from sadomasochistic sexual imprinting while somehow maintaining an inner continuity that remains unfazed, nonjudgmental, and cheerful. Witty and intelligent, arch and earnest,Salvationhas a Dickensian sweep, an empathetic heart, and a naturalists eye for both the vagaries and the logic of human nature.
