- DescriptionNAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND BOOKLIST Paris, 1815. Daniel Conr, a young medical student from Edinburgh, has arrived to study anatomy at the Jardin des Plantes--only to realize that his letters of introduction and precious coral specimens, on which his tenure with the legendary Dr. Cuvier depends, have been stolen. His thief turns out to be a beautiful woman who lives in a shadowy realm of outlaws, philosophers, and emigres. As Daniel falls in love with her, he discovers a radical theory of evolution that irrevocably changes his conception of the world.
