Set in the harsh, deadly coastal winters of 19th Century Lyme Regis, in England, Anthea Simmons gritty, compelling book about the real life palaeontologist Mary Anning is as inspirational as it is

one of the things I enjoyed most about the writing and Mary s adventures around the sea blighted landscape, was how well Simmons portrays the rough, torrid and difficult place this countryside is The story centres around Mary s younger years, where she finds her passion for fossicking , or digging up dinosaurs as she will much later realise She meets an inspirational, rich boy who does help hone her dreams about being scientistbut the forceful and forthright character of Mary herself does not need any persuasion or help from anyone It is a true story that Mary Anning was struck by lightning when she was a baby He person holding her and two others died, but Mary survived And, because of this miracle , the portrayal of Mary as an extraordinarily forceful and gifted woman seems to organically fit the flow of the story There are real undertones of shining feminism in Mary s struggles to be recognised as a scientist in her own right, amongst the boys club of a male dominated world And, through great personal tragedies, and overwhelming poverty, Mary carries on with her discovery of a full sized dinosaur skeleton She manages to recruit her town to support her, and she becomes famous for being a revolutionary fossil hunter It s a beautiful, heartfelt story that does inspire young people to consider science as a career as a STEM ette novel, this is partly its purpose , and underlines what an important part in the history of southwest England Mary Anning played I sad but inspiring tale about the famous archaeologist, Lighting Mary Anning.I enjoyed the book as a whole It was very slow to begging and I think the writing style itself was a little overly descriptive and dragged, but then again I also didn t quite get on with Mary s character so it may have simply been that which made it seem to drag.I did enjoy once the action picked up however and I m content and fulfilled with the ending Learning about Mary s life and passion was definitely worth the

not always neatly resolved no mean feat Engagingly written with a wonderful voice , this fictionalised account of the early life of Mary Anning one of my heroes was so enjoyable The book perfectly evokes the frustrations of Mary s status and how little was thought of her genius because she was female it also gives a palpable account of the challenges she and her family faced due to poverty and
