The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge

Reviewed by Melissa Beck (Library Staff)

What a wonderfully chilling autumn read! An archaeological dig brings Faith and her family to a clammy island with sharp cliffs and churning beach shores. Soon after their arrival, tragedy strikes and scientific-minded Faith is caught up in matters of science vs. religion and feminism vs. patriarchy while exploring deep family secrets. Set in England not long after Darwin published On the Origin of Species, Hardinge spins heavy dichotomies into her gorgeous prose, making for an intensely rich reading experience.
