The Signature of All Things

(0) No Reviews yet


In her best-seller Eat, Pray, Love Gilbert did well as a memoirist, but she reaches an entirely new place in artistry and genius as a fiction writer. The Signature of All Things is a literary masterpiece bound to become a classic, read and re-read for years to come. I simply adored it and can't wait to read it again just to savor the intricacy and beauty of the language and the story. Set in the time when science, evolution, and matters of the spirit were vying for the human heart, Gilbert's glorious epic brings the nineteenth century and all its challenges and gifts vividly alive, with characters so memorable you have to remind yourself that they exist only in the pages of a book. It is a time when Darwin is formulating his theory of natural selection and botanical exploration is exploding; when a poor man from London, Henry Whitaker, can become one of the wealthiest businessmen in America and his brilliant daughter, Alma, can excel in her own right as a skilled botanist and evolutionary thinker. Gilbert has taken historical fiction to a new level of excellence and delight. There is no way to do justice to this book in a paragraph. You are just going to have to open the pages yourself and dive in. Hours later, you'll look up and wonder what century it is and how you can possibly put the book down and go on about your twenty-first century day!
