This is a very readable history of the worst plague in human history. Kelly vividly portrays the march of death across the land in the voices of that time. The descriptions of squalor and filth, and of the mounting death tolls defy our imagination. The acts of heroism and of cruel abandonment are many. The roll of greed and religion makes one ill. I found the explanation as to how and why the plague reached the proportions that it did very interesting. After reading this book reflect on how you would react if placed in similar circumstances.
