Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Alma Whitaker, born in 1800, lives a life of money and ease. She spends most of her life in study and learning. She is a botanist and briologist who leads a sheltered life but later travels to Tahiti and Holland. Though she longs for love it never really comes her way. For her, finding the answers and contributing to the wealth of human knowledge is fulfillment. It’s hard to explain why this book is so good but it’s one of my favorites of the year.
