The Darwin Conspiracy
[a Novel]DAISY - 2005
The mysteries behind Charles Darwin's stunning theory of evolution and natural selection form the crux of Darnton's novel, which blends history and imaginative drama to thought-provoking effect. Darnton tells his story from three perspectives: Charles Darwin as a young man enthralled by nature, growing into manhood and professional ambitions on his voyage aboard the Beagle to South America, where he first formulated his theories; Lizzie Darwin, the naturalist's youngest daughter, a budding feminist constrained by Victorian society who eventually stumbles across a secret that transforms her relationship with her father; and modern-day scholars Hugh Kellum and Beth Dulcimer who compete--then collaborate--in efforts to discover the genesis of Darwin's theory.
