“The Signature of All Things,” by Elizabeth Gilbert

Best known for her 2006 memoir, “Eat, Pray, Love,” Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction with her latest novel, about a 19th-century female botanist. And it’s a winner, writes Washington Post critic Marie Arana: “ ‘The Signature of All Things’ is that rare literary achievement: a big, panoramic novel about life and love that captures the idiom and tenor of its age.” It’s not seamless, Arana says, “but there are far more moments of transcendence, of Gilbert reaching — with absolute confidence — for a higher sphere.”
