The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert

Signature of All Things

Reviewed by Terry Zignego (Library Staff)

Last week, I had only one book on my mind…The Signature of All Things. I couldn’t wait to pick it up and return to the life of Alma Whittaker. Her story is told with sumptuous historical detail. Born into the wealthiest family in Philadelphia, she enjoys a classical education of Greek, Latin, math & science. She becomes a botanist & later in life delves into evolutionary theory. A fascinating historical context & magnificent characterizations combine to create a fulfilling reading experience. Highly recommended!

Located in Adult Fiction (FIC GILBERT). Also available as a Playaway!
