Book: Charles and Emma: The Darwins' Leap of Faith by Deborah Heligman
Recommended by: Joseph
I started reading this curious book (a study of the Darwins' marriage written for teens?) on Darwin Day (February 12), 2016. I was interested in learning more about how they made their long and mixed-belief relationship work (throughout their 40+ years together, Charles was a skeptic and Emma was a believer). Turns out, it was the things that we already know make strong relationships: mutual respect, communication, love, open minds, trust, physical touch, shared goals.
What a great story. The author considered titling this book Charles, Emma, and God: The Darwins at Home, which I think is just perfect. Make sure to check out Creation, the fantastic film about Mr. and Mrs. Darwin starring married actors Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly.
