Rate this:
A complex and intelligent novel that, like Darnton's first bestseller "Neanderthal", brilliantly blends fact and fiction. This time the reader is transported to 19th Century England and around the world to solve a legendary mystery, what really led Darwin to his theory of evolution. The late 19th century was known for its scientific advances, daring voyages to map every inch of the globe, and fastidious Victorian manners. Charles Darwin, more than any other Englishman, epitomized the era's movement toward a rational world order. Yet beneath his proper façade, Darwin's life was filled with mysterious ailments and dark secrets that no one except his third daughter, Lizzie, ever suspected. Unmarried, Lizzie remained at home with her parents most of her life and as devoted as she was to her father, her appraisal of his inscrutable ways filled the pages of her diaries.
