One of the most acclaimed and revered writers of her generation returns with her most ambitious novel yet—an elegant, multi-layered work, rich in imagination and exquisitely told, that interweaves a quartet of journeys across continents and centuries.

In Everything the Light Touches, we meet many travelers. Shai, a young Indian woman who journeys to India's northeast and rediscovers ways of being that realign her. Evelyn, a Cambridge student who seeks out the sacred forests of the Lower Himalayas. Linnaeus, botanist and taxonomist, who famously declared "God creates; Linnaeus organizes" and led an expedition to Lapland in 1732. Goethe, who traveled through Italy in the 1780s, formulating his ideas for a revelatory text that called for a reexamination of our propensity to reduce plants—and the world—into immutable parts.

Everything the Light Touches brings together people and places that seem, at first, removed from each other in time and place. Yet all is resonance, we discover; all is connection.
