Born in 1800, Alma Whittaker becomes a botanist of considerable gifts. She falls in love with Ambrose Pike who makes incomparable paintings of orchids and who draws her in the exact opposite direction – into the realm of the spiritual, the divine, and the magical. Alma is a clear-minded scientist, Ambrose a utopian artist. What unites this unlikely couple is a desperate need to understand the workings of the world and the mechanisms behind all life. DAISY-Fassung eines kommerziellen Hörbuchs.
