THE ESSEX SERPENT by Sarah Perry contains multitudes -- unrequited loves, interrogations on the compatibility of faith and reason, and storylines that illuminate the seismic shifts in Victorian attitudes toward evolution, medicine, workers’ rights, religion and feminism. Perry vividly draws a rural England where myth and superstition hold sway. Yet it is the personal passions and ambitions of the characters that immerse the reader in Perry’s imagined world; people whose loves and hatreds, strivings and failings are so relatable and fully evoked that they linger long after you finish the last page.
