The Signature of All Things, by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert has written an enthralling story of love, adventure and discovery. Spanning much of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the novel follows the fortunes of the extraordinary Whittaker family —a poor-born Englishman who makes a great fortune in the South American quinine trade, eventually becoming the richest man in Philadelphia. The story continues through the next generation with Henry's brilliant daughter, Alma and her love for botany and talented mind. As Alma's research takes her deeper into the mysteries of evolution, she falls in love with a man named Ambrose Pike who creates painting of orchids. Ambrose draws her in the exact opposite direction — into the realm of the spiritual, the divine, and the magical. Alma is a clear-minded scientist; Ambrose a utopian artist — but what unites this unlikely couple is a desperate need to understand the workings of this world and the mechanisms behind all life. Exquisitely researched and told at a galloping pace, The Signature of All Things soars across the globe—from London to Peru to Philadelphia to Tahiti to Amsterdam, and beyond.
