Publisher's Summary

From the moment she’s struck by lightning as a baby, it is clear Mary Anning is marked for greatness. When she uncovers unknown dinosaur fossils in the cliffs near her home, she sets the scientific world alight, challenging ideas about the world’s creation and stimulating debate over our origins. In an arena dominated by men, however, Mary is soon reduced to a serving role, facing prejudice from the academic community, vicious gossip from neighbours, and the heartbreak of forbidden love.
Luckily Mary finds an unlikely champion in prickly, intelligent Elizabeth Philpot, a middle-class spinster who is also fossil-obsessed. Despite their differences in age and background, Mary and Elizabeth discover that, in struggling for recognition, friendship is their strongest weapon.

Wonderful stuff

Very much enjoyed the book, am so impressed by Mary's story. Was recommended this audiobook from a podcast sponsored by Audible, and it certainly didn't disappoint. Loved the switch in accent and tone of voice when the story was passed between the two narrators. An incredible story narrated beautifully, and a pleasure to listen to.
