Summary
  • Set in nineteenth-century New England, this novel tests a woman's love against her husband's utopian quest
  • Sophy Hedge falls in love with Gideon Birdsall, a driven theology student assisting her father with a Hebrew lexicon. Gideon's restlessness after they wed worries Sophy, and she finds his friendship with Leander Solloway, the charismatic new schoolmaster, a cause for anxiety. When Sophy becomes pregnant, Gideon and Leander construct a faux Eden in a greenhouse as part of a daring experiment to discover the language of paradise-- the tongue Adam spoke when he named the creatures of the earth
