Why did you read this book? I enjoyed Elizabeth Gilbert’s last novel, Stern Men (pre-Eat, Pray, Love), so I was glad to see she’d written another novel.
Has Jeremy read it? No.
42-word review: This dense saga follows Alma through the 19th century as she studies mosses, suffers heartbreak and travels the world. The supporting characters are less well drawn, and there are many subplots, but there’s a lot to like in her character and adventures.
Overall rating: 4 mosses (out of 5)
