1867 Philadelphia Amateur naturalist Walter Ash is on the brink of setting off to travel up his beloved when fate intervenes obliging his only son to take his place More at ease among his books than in the field Paul Ash takes a reluctant leave of absence from Harvard's Museum of Compa. I have very much liked a couple of York's earlier books Effigy and Mercy If she had actually finished writing this book I would have given it a 2 or 3 The writing is okay there isn't much to the plot there's a lot of descriptions of settings and Portuguese When I got to abut 30 pages from the end I thought how is she going to bring this tale to some sort of conclusion in the remaining pages She didn't The story just ended It's one thing to leave a complicated story with an ambiguous or unresolved ending But nothing much happens in this story the plot such as it is isn't complex There potentially is some issue for each of the 3 main characters Paul Iris Rachel to resolve but they don't The story just ends literally deep in the jungle and figuratively nowhere
