Overview

Son las primeras horas de la madrugada de un día cualquiera de comienzos del siglo XIX y dos mujeres andan por las rocas escarpadas de la costa inglesa en busca de unas piedras extrañas que llevan la marca de vidas antiguas. Elizabeth, una dama culta y soltera, y Mary, una chiquilla de humilde condición, comparten una afición peculiar: las dos buscan y coleccionan fósiles. Su labor es discreta, pero llega el día en que Mary por fin encuentra una pieza de grandes dimensiones, que acabará en las vitrinas de un museo de Londres. A este hallazgo le siguen otros igual de sorprendentes que no consiguen sacar a Mary del anonimato y la pobreza, pero sí abrir el debate en la comunidad científica acerca del origen de las especies. Solo muchos años más tarde el talento tendrá su recompensa y el nombre de las dos mujeres entrará por fin en las páginas de la Historia con mayúscula.

Como es habitual en ella, Tracy Chevalier, la famosa autora de La joven de la perla y El maestro de la inocencia, vuelve a entrelazar aquí ficción y realidad para contarnos la historia de Mary Anning y Elizabeth Philpot, dos mujeres que compartieron pasiones, frustraciones y la firme voluntad de abrirse camino en un mundo dominado por la soberbia del hombre.

«Tracy Chevalier ha hecho de la novela histórica su seña de identidad.»
