Readalong : Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier

In April, our book club Les Copines d’Abord will be reading Remarkable Creaturesby Tracy Chevalier. I’ll post my thoughts on April 26th and will let you know the outcome of our book club discussion.

You’re welcome come aboard and read it along with us, just leave a comment to say you’re in. If you have a blog, I’ll read your review and link it to mine ; if you don’t, just write your thoughts in the comment section.

I haven’t read it yet, but here is the blurb on Amazon:

A voyage of discoveries, a meeting of two remarkable women, and extraordinary time and place enrich bestselling author Tracy Chevalier’s enthralling new novel

From the moment she’s struck by lightening as a baby, it is clear that Mary Anning is marked for greatness. On the windswept, fossil-strewn beaches of the English coast, she learns that she has “the eye”-and finds what no one else can see. When Mary uncovers an unusual fossilized skeleton in the cliffs near her home, she sets the religious fathers on edge, the townspeople to vicious gossip, and the scientific world alight. In an arena dominated by men, however, Mary is barred from the academic community; as a young woman with unusual interests she is suspected of sinful behavior. Nature is a threat, throwing bitter, cold storms and landslips at her. And when she falls in love, it is with an impossible man.
