Description
(2009 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature, a YALSA-ALA Excellence in Young Adult Nonfiction winner, and a Michael L. Printz Honor book ) Long before Charles Darwin hesitantly published The Origin of Species in 1859, he and his devout wife Emma were divided on the issues of creationism and evolution. In this biography for readers 12 and up—a YALSA-ALA Excellence in Young Adult Nonfiction winner and a Michael L. Printz Honor book—Deborah Heiligman gives us Charles and Emma's unique love story, that of a couple determined to be honest, even as each challenges what the other holds dear.

"This is the 'wow' biography on the Darwins—meticulously researched, richly rendered and rewarding every step of the way."—San Francisco Chronicle

"At its heart, Charles and Emma is a love story—but it is amazing how much you learn by the time you finish. I enjoyed every page."—Professor Ari L. Goldman
