Bought this today.
" 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. But Mary must face powerful prejudice from a male scientific establishment, not to mention vicious gossip and the heartbreak of forbidden love. Then- in prickly, clever Elizabeth Philpot, a fossil-obsessed middle-class spinster- she finds a champion, and a rival. Despite their differences in class and age, Mary and Elizabeth's loyalty and passion for the truth must win out..."
This was a really good book. Not easy to put away.

I heard a book review on this book a while back and it's been on my wishlist ever since. Thank you so much, zimort, for sending the book my way. I am looking forward to reading it! :)

I actually started reading this book a while ago, but then life caught up with me and I had to put it aside. I just continued reading it a few days ago but since then couldn't put it down.
The book didn't provoke any curiosity in fossils, but I enjoyed the story of Mary Anning and Elizabeth Philpot very much.

A very welcome return visit to Lyme Regis for me, last time in the company of Sarah Woodruff and now this fascinating perspective of Mary Anning and Elizabeth Philpot struggling against all the would be collectors/scholars and mores of the day. This story has made a return real time visit to the area even more alluring, I would truly like to see the Philpot Museum in Cockmoile Square and walk out onto The Cobb again. Thank you glitterbe, an abosrbing read.
