A quiet book that I enjoyed. Intimate glimpses of Darwin's work and family life. The book focuses on the importance of Darwin's garden in the development of evolutionary theory and in peace and joy it provided him, allowing him to continue his work despite ill health and professional stress. The text meanders, but if you aren't expecting a thrill a minute and enjoy padding an appreciation for one of the most concientious of men, who also happens to be one of the most ground breaking scientists ever, read away.
