LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION
SHORTLISTED FOR THE WELLCOME BOOK PRIZE
From the moment Alma Whittaker steps into the world, everything about life intrigues her. Instilled with an unquenchable sense of wonder by her father, a botanical explorer and the richest man in the New World, Alma is raised in a house of luxury and curiosity. It is not long before she becomes a gifted botanist in her own right. But as she flourishes and her research takes her deeper into the mysteries of evolution, the man she comes to love draws her in the opposite direction — into the realm of the spiritual, the divine and the magical.
The Signature of All Things soars across the globe of the nineteenth century, from London and Peru, to Philadelphia, Tahiti and beyond. Peopled with extraordinary characters along the way, most of all it has an unforgettable heroine in Alma Whittaker.

Compelling detail and research on botany but characters and their melodramas were in poor taste.

This is marvelous piece for no doubts I much enjoyed every page of it. This is true guide for my never satisfied and ever curious inner beast. I will highly recommend it for those who still seeking some answers about ones origin.

Moreover, he had learned that silence can sometimes relax a listener into thinking that one might be intelligent.
“Then I shall tell you, Miss Whittaker,” he said. “I would like never to travel again. I would like to spend the rest of my days in a place so silent—and working at a pace so slow—that I would be able to hear myself living.”
A parent is inexcusable who does not personally teach her child to think.
