A generation earlier, however, when Tracy Chevalier's rough-petticoated heroine was pulling out of cliffs in Lyme Regis the evidence that would go into this insight, nobody wanted to believe that God did not, as one of Chevalier's characters puts it, "plan out what He would do with all of the animals He created". It is a stunning story, compassionately reimagined. In real life Chevalier's heroine, Mary Anning, was the greatest fossil-hunter ever. As a young child, Mary survived a lightning strike, which people said made her strange and extra bright.

È il 1811 a Lyme, un piccolo villaggio sulla costa meridionale inglese. Un giorno, sbarcano nel villaggio le sorelle Philpot e la quiete è subito un pallido ricordo. Vengono da Londra, sono eleganti, vestite alla moda, sono bizzarre creature per gli abitanti di quella costa spazzata dal vento. Margaret, diciotto anni, sorprende costantemente tutti coi suoi turbanti verdolini sconosciuti alle ragazze di Lyme, che se ne vanno in giro ancora con grevi vestiti stile impero. Louise, meravigliosi occhi grigi e grandi mani, coltiva una passione per la botanica che è incomprensibile in quel piccolo mondo dove alle donne è dato solo di maritarsi e accudire i figli. Elizabeth, la più grande delle Philpot, a costituire uneccentrica figura in quel paesino sperduto sulla costa. Ha venticinque anni. Dovrebbe comportarsi come una sfortunata zitella per letà che ha, ma se ne va in giro come una persona orgogliosamente libera e istruita che non si cura affatto di civettare con gli uomini. In paese ha stretto amicizia con Mary Anning, la figlia dellebanista. Quandera poco più che una poppante, Mary è stata colpita da un fulmine. La donna che la teneva fra le braccia e le due ragazze accanto a lei morirono, ma lei la scampò. Prima dellincidente era una bimba quieta e malaticcia. Ora è una ragazzina vivace e sveglia che passa il suo tempo sulla spiaggia di Lyme, dove dice di aver scoperto strane creature dalle ossa gigantesche, coccodrilli enormi vissuti migliaia di anni fa. Basata sulla storia vera di Mary Anning, la ragazzina che a Lyme Bay portò alla luce il cranio del primo ittiosauro e rese così possibile quella svolta negli studi sullevoluzione che trovò il suo coronamento nel 1859, con la pubblicazione dellOrigine delle specie di Darwin, Strane creature è una delle opere più riuscite di Tracy Chevalier: unavvincente storia di donne che lottano contro le ottuse convenzioni di unepoca per aprire la strada al progresso e alla conoscenza.
