"Annie was Charles and Emma Darwin's adored first daughter. Her death at the age of ten broke their hearts. At the time, Darwin was working secretly on his theory of evolution and the pain of his daughter's death sharpened his conviction that natural laws have nothing to do with divine intervention. But he became racked with anxiety about his ground-breaking theories in The Origin of Species, and the controversy they would cause. As Darwin's theories continue to shape so much of our thinking about human nature today, CREATION gives us fresh insight into the private life of a man who viewed the world in a new and extraordinary way."
"It is a rare biography that reveals the key emotional moment in its subject's personal and intellectual life so clearly as Randal Keynes does for Charles Darwin . . . moving and illuminating."
