"One of the most distinguished of all modern biographies" Guardian "A monumental and absorbing biography" Scotsman "Her first book, Voyaging, was hailed as a magisterial introduction to Darwin's life, a work that vividly evoked period, character and ideas. The only question was: could she follow it up? It has taken seven years to get an answer: an emphatic yes" -- Robin McKie Observer "Browne's first volume was warmly received when it appeared seven years ago, and the second triumphantly fulfils its promise...[a] remarkable book" -- James Secord Daily Telegraph "A marvellous book... This second part of the life stands on its own. Soothing, unhurried and absorbing" -- Jane Ridley Spectator
