Elizabeth Gilbert visits the 19th century in 'The Signature of All Things'
With a charming, flawed heroine straight out of Jane Austen, a Dickensian rags-to-riches story and thwarted romances that hark back to the Brontës, Elizabeth Gilbert has taken cues from the greatest 19th century writers for her big 19th century-style novel, "The Signature of All Things."
