The book describes Edmundís early years in an exceptionally devout Plymouth Brethren home. His mother, who dies early and painfully of breast cancer, is a writer of Christian tracts. His father, Philip Henry Gosse, is an influential, though largely self-taught, invertebrate zoologist and student of marine biology who, after his wifeís death, takes Edmund to live in Devon. The book focuses on the fatherís response to the new evolutionary theories, especially those of his scientific colleague Charles Darwin, and Edmundís gradual rejection of both his father and his fatherís fundamentalist religion.
