The Signature of All Things
The Signature of All Things: A Novel | Elizabeth Gilbert
A glorious, sweeping novel of desire, ambition, and the thirst for knowledge, from the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and CommittedLook out for Elizabeth Gilberts new book,Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, on sale now! In The Signature of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction, inserting her inimitable voice into an enthralling story of love, adventure and discovery. Spanning much of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the novel follows the fortunes of the extraordinary Whittaker family as led by the enterprising Henry Whittakera poor-born Englishman who makes a great fortune in the South American quinine trade, eventually becoming the richest man in Philadelphia. Born in 1800, Henrys brilliant daughter, Alma (who inherits both her fathers money and his mind), ultimately becomes a botanist of considerable gifts herself. As Almas research takes her deeper into the mysteries of evolution, she falls in love with a man named Ambrose Pike who makes incomparable paintings of orchids and who draws her in the exact opposite directioninto the realm of the spiritual, the divine, and the magical. Alma is a clear-minded scientist; Ambrose a utopian artistbut what unites this unlikely couple is a desperate need to understand the workings of this world and the mechanisms behind all life. Exquisitely researched and told at a galloping pace, The Signature of All Things soars across the globefrom London to Peru to Philadelphia to Tahiti to Amsterdam, and beyond. Along the way, the story is peopled with unforgettable characters: missionaries, abolitionists, adventurers, astronomers, sea captains, geniuses, and the quite mad. But most memorable of all, it is the story of Alma Whittaker, whoborn in the Age of Enlightenment, but living well into the Industrial Revolutionbears witness to that extraordinary moment in human history when all the old assumptions about science, religion, commerce, and class were exploding into dangerous new ideas. Written in the bold, questing spirit of that singular time, Gilberts wise, deep, and spellbinding tale is certain to capture the hearts and minds of readers.

I have been looking at this book sitting in my library for months and months. I started and stopped it a few times but I'm into the first few chapters and I'm intrigued. We'll see if I get distracted lol.

About 175 pages in and have really enjoyed this so far. I feel like there needs to be something big coming though in order to carry the story another 300 pages. I'm spending a few minutes pondering what that might be, then back to reading to see how correct (or off base) I was. 🤔

This book has sat on my shelf for at least 5 years, maybe more, yet it has never quite felt like the right time to read it. I was browsing my shelves last night and so many of them I can't bring myself to start because I'm so hypersensitive to trauma and current events right now. I needed something to completely immerse me in a different time/place, and this has turned out to be the ticket. 50 pages in and loving it!

AvidReader25 This has been on my TBR for a long time too! 8mo
CuriousG @AvidReader25 I often second guess myself when I let a book sit on my shelf so long and think I'll never actually get excited about it, but always seem to come back to them at just the right time. I'm really glad I kept this one...I almost gave it away when I moved a few years ago and was scaling back my collection. 8mo

This was a long book that felt much shorter due to the highly engaging nature of the writing & the quality of the characters. A little slow perhaps but I was always eager to know what happened next. Alma is a fascinating & inspiring figure - not always likeable but her flaws make her real. It is also meticulously researched. I was totally invested in Alma's life - her drive & intelligence, her strength, her, er, weirdo husband! Good stuff!

A gorgeous historical fiction novel beginning at the start of the 19th century and spanning almost 100 years. A story of science, discovery, nature, love, devotion and wonderment. Elizabeth Gilbert has created a truly remarkable character and a sweeping saga that will leave you dazzled.

SamAnne So good! I reluctantly picked it up because I didn‘t think I wanted to read a book written by the author who had written Eat, Pray, Love which is not my jam. But this one was so lovely. 1y
Cinfhen This book blew me away...I didn‘t think Elizabeth Gilbert was capable of such gorgeous storytelling @SamAnne 1y

Centique I adored this book until the ending. Which is totally my own fault - I just didn‘t get enough of the characters I wanted to find out more about. I find that happens to me sometimes when a book is full of my favourite things - I get too invested in what I want to happen 😂😂😂 1y
Centique Still think it‘s a 5 star book anyway! 1y
Deblovestoread I am glad to hear this @SamAnne I have turned my nose up every time I‘ve seen it because of how much I disliked E P L but HF is my jam and two winning endorsements is good enough for me. 1y

Cinfhen It‘s really good @Kdgordon88 if you love HF I‘m pretty sure this won‘t disappoint 1y
Cinfhen I‘m surprised the ending bothered you @Centique I can‘t imagine a different ending and I thought the character development was really strong. What would you have liked to see/ happen?? Just curious- you‘re obviously much more imaginative than I am 😘😘 1y
Centique @Cinfhen it‘s a while ago now so forgive me if I‘ve got things wrong - but I wanted her to go back home to the big estate and reconnect with her sister. I felt really interested in the sister and wanted to find out what happened to her 1y
Centique @Cinfhen and I think I didn‘t enjoy the romance aspect at the end perhaps. This is 8 years ago though so I might have that wrong. (edited) 1y
Cinfhen I get that @Centique I thought it was a little cringey when she has that sexual encounter in the moss cave with the Tahitian man 🙄and it would have been nice to see the sisters reunited but I feel like her going to Amsterdam made sense and I felt like the sisters came to a sort of unspoken understanding. It was a great story- really full bodied ❤️ 1y
Centique @Cinfhen yeah, I agree. I was just so in love with that house 😂😂 1y
Cinfhen @DivineDiana shared an article about the actual house that Gilbert used as inspiration and she was able to tour the house @Centique it‘s not far from where I resided in Philly...I‘d love to visit one day. It does seem AMAZING 🤩 especially the grounds and gardens 1y

It‘s just a really well told story about a woman who loves moss in the 19th century. It‘s a science story, a history story, a travel story, a feminist story, and a love story.

This book just wasn't for me. I at least finished this one, which I can't say the same for the author's effort Eat, Pray, Love. Gilbert is perhaps just not an author whose works I enjoy. I didn't enjoy this, but since I was able to finish it, I give 2 stars. Into the donation pile it goes.

Set in the 1800s, The Signature of All Things follows the life of Alma Whitaker, the naturalist, moss-obsessed daughter of a self-made plant magnate, from before her birth to her old age. The beauty and enjoyment in this book are in the twists and turns of a life fully lived, not plot. Within these pages, you‘ll find curiosity and love, desire and sexuality, god and science, family and sacrifice, all the grandeur and humble detail of life itself.

This long 600 page novel is about heroines, botany, the historical discovery of science, philosophy, love triangles, lust, exploration, adventurous journeys and interesting characters. I love historical fiction and I love botany so I enjoyed all the detailed descriptions. In some parts I felt I was reading a science textbook. Overall I enjoyed it and found the research the author did to put this book together simply incredible. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A meandering novel that charts the life of an extraordinary (fictional) woman spanning the majority of the 19th century and the major developments in science and biology. I liked that it was twisting and slow, with no more plottiness apparent that starting with Alma‘s birth and ending with her death. There was a lot of rumination about faith, conviction, morality, belief, communication, knowledge, self-sacrifice that gave me a lot to think about.

balletbookworm What I found most fascinating was Alma‘s position as the main character - she is not “likeable”, she makes some cringe-worthy assumptions about others because she presumed to know too much (particularly about other people) without directly communicating with that person, but she is so compelling.

I highly recommend the audiobook version - Juliet Stevenson is an extraordinary narrator.

At its best, this book was a thoughtful and deeply engaging look at one woman's life. It's a long life, and a long book. Alma Whittaker is born into a wealthy family and devotes her life to botany and the study of mosses. She focuses on her own quiet gardens, often to the point of overlooking or misunderstanding the needs and sacrifices of those around her. Ultimately Alma proves to be a hardy and adaptable specimen, able to survive and thrive.

I really enjoyed #eatpraylove, so I was excited when I came across The Signature of All Things. The storytelling was a bit different and I now know more about moss than I ever dreamed of. There was a bit of “personal” info about Alma I could‘ve done without, but I picked this up in an airport and it satisfied my day.
