Remarkable Creatures

by Tracy Chevalier
# UT2472 Paperback, 312 pages; 2016 (2010)

Based on real-life nineteenth-century fossil hunters Mary Anning (a poor, uneducated local of the British seaside village of Lyme) and Elizabeth Philpot (a middle-class spinster, transplanted to Lyme from London), this historical novel is remarkably exhilarating! You'll be swept up by the thrill of the hunt in the rugged coastal setting, the scientific and religious tumult in the wake of new findings, the grace of the women engaging in such an "unladylike pursuit," the romance, the adventure, and, best of all, a friendship so powerful it brought tears to my eyes! (CH)
