Stevenson’s sublimely melodious, richly inflected voice brings myriad characters, places and even plants and animals to life in this story of a fictional 19th century botanist. Alma Whittaker’s goal of finding a connection between all living things takes her on a solo quest to exotic places on this journey of serendipitous self-discovery.
