Remarkable Creatures

Tracy Chevalier

In the early nineteenth century, a windswept beach along the English coast brims with fossils for those with the eye… From the moment she’s struck by lightning as a baby, it is clear Mary Anning is different. Her discovery of strange fossilized creatures in the cliffs of Lyme Regis sets the world alight. Mary must face powerful prejudice from a male scientific establishment, not to mention gossip and the heartbreak of forbidden love.
