The box was Annie's treasured writing case. Annie was Charles and Emma Darwin's first daughter, and her death at the age of 10 broke their hearts. When Annie was a baby, Darwin doted on her, and thought about man's animal origins. As Annie grew into a lively child, Darwin worked secretly on his theory of evolution, but his ideas were just one part of the family's life. When Annie fell ill, Darwin was at her bedside, but could not save her. The acute pain of her loss cast deep shadows over his thinking about the natural world and the struggle for life. The author takes us into the family's private world and draws on a wealth of previously unseen material to tell Annie s story with rich and poignant detail. ''Science and humanity come together in this vivid portrait.'' Illus.
