really liked it

An enchanting and interesting book. The author draws interesting and likeable characters whose paths I was drawn into and eager to follow. Her story is set in two eras - 18th century and today - of two people living in the same house. There are useful parallels in this scenario with our 18th century story depicting the negative reactions to Darwin's theory of evolution and the influence of right wing dogma and capitalist thinking - paralleling this with the 21st century USA entering the racism and misogyny of the Trump era and the same religious dogma refusing to accept climate change and the disaster of growth capitalism. Despite this I found it a gentle and thoughtful read.
