Narration by Juliet Stevenson. Thank you to Joann of Lakeside Musings who sold me on the idea to listen to this one. Fabulous recommendation.
I do love long audiobooks! This one had me from the get go.
I am one of those that loved Eat, Pray, Love but haven’t read any of her subsequent nonfiction books. I hope to, though. And with this, so curious how she would do with fiction. I liked it very much. Some may not read her books based on her first and that is a pity but I think she will be just fine and her writing career is set.
I liked Alma Whittaker. I was fascinated by her father and his story of how he came to wealth. I thought his marriage to Beatrix extremely fortunate for them both – they suited each other.
I didn’t quite get Prudence. Never did get a satisfactory answer to “the Prudence Question”, did we?
I am marking this Historical Fiction due to how well she covers the 1800’s and the history of the players in Evolution Theory. I am now thinking of this book EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. that I see moss!

RATING: Four slices of pie. And a few bites into the fifth slice, too.
