    It's been a while since I've fallen into a book as quickly and happily as I have with Elizabeth Gilbert's latest novel. I am absolutely enthralled by the writing. I love the characters and I am loathe to finish the book because I don't want to say goodbye to them. The story has evoked gasps, laughter, and already a few tears, as well as a few moments of, "I never knew that!" Truly a fantastic book.

    I am wondering if Elizabeth Gilbert is a better fiction writer than a non-fiction writer after reading this book. Profound, delightful and feminist - an unbelievable combination.

    The Signature of All Things, by Elizabeth Gilbert it's an historical fiction novel that enthrals a story of adventure, love and discovery. It sets, for the most part, in the eighteenth century and narrates the life of an extraordinary family. Henry Whittaker, a poor Englishman who became a botanical explorer and made a great fortune in the science field of medicinal plant development. Henry's wife, Beatrix Whittaker, is an expert botanist with a strong disposition. The central character, Alma Whittaker is a brilliant minded person who becomes a botanist as well. As Alma carefully studies moss and the mysteries of evolution within the mosses itself, many other naturalist such as Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace are desperate to understand the workings and mechanisms behind all life in different ramifications. Elizabeth Gilbert portraits an extraordinary era in human history when all the old assumptions about science, religion, commerce, and class were exploding into dangerous new ideas. This novel has an engaging plot that will take you across the globe from London to South America to Amsterdam to Philadelphia to French Polynesia and beyond. It will keep you captivated in the Enlighten era of the 1800's. Gilbert's exquisitely deep, sagacious and spellbinding tale is certain to capture the hearts and minds of readers.
