Year of Wonders: A Novel of the Plague by Geraldine Brooks

When an infected bolt of cloth carries plague from London to an isolated village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Annas eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. As death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, Anna must find the strength to confront the disintegration of her community and the lure of illicit love. As she struggles to survive and grow, a year of catastrophe becomes instead annus mirabilis, a year of wonders. Inspired by the true story of Eyam, a village in the rugged hill country of England, Year of Wondersis a richly detailed evocation of a singular moment in history. Written with stunning emotional intelligence and introducing an inspiring heroine (The Wall Street Journal), Brooks blends love and learning, loss and renewal into a spellbinding and unforgettable read. The novel glitters . . . A deep imaginative engagement with how people are changed by catastrophe. (The New Yorker) Year of Wondersis a vividly imagined and strangely consoling tale of hope in a time of despair. (O, The Oprah Magazine) Brooks proves a gifted storyteller as she subtly reveals how ignorance, hatred and mistrust can be as deadly as any virus. . . . Year of Wondersis itself a wonder. (People
