Award-winning novelist, memoirist, journalist and biographer Elizabeth Gilbert is best known for her mega-bestseller--and book-club favorite--Eat, Pray, Love. This October, 12 years after her previous novel, Stern Men, Gilbert returns to fiction in The Signature of All Things, a historical novel spanning the 18th and 19th centuries from The Enlightenment to the Industrial Revolution. Alma Whittaker is a science-obsessed follower of Charles Darwin who falls in love with Ambrose Pike, a naturalist and painter who teaches Alma about the spiritual world--in all senses. Just asEat, Pray, Love took Gilbert around the world in a search for meaning, The Signature of All Thingstakes the reader to London, Peru, Philadelphia, Tahiti, Amsterdam and more, following characters as they seek the inner workings of life.
