    Fabulous read, and very good book club discussion book. Interesting characters, and learned something of the plague which i knew nothing about.

    by Cynthia M

    A great read. I loved it. My husband loved it. Transport back to an earlier time England mid-1600s. The language in archaic enough to make you feel you are actually back in time, yet not so archaic that you have any trouble at all following the story. If you enjoy historical fiction or just fiction set in older times this is for you.

  • One of the best books ever Nov 8, 2012

    a very well written story on the plague in England.
    through the eyes of someone who has to deal with the ordeal of caring and burying all the people around her. The book is written with wit and masterfully takes you to a very difficult time in the life of a town covered with sickness, envy, faith and love.
