An amazing novel about a town that quarantined itself as the residents died off from the Bubonic Plague to prevent it from spreading. The town is real - there is a historical marker, but not much is known so author Brooks used it as the basis for a richly crafted tale that drew me right in.
Protagonist Anna Frith shows the strong spirit a woman can muster in the bleakest of times. Based on actual events this is as good as historical fiction gets.

"How was I to face the days and nights to come? There would be no other relief for me; in my two hands I held my only chance of exit from our village and its agonies."
