Year of Wonders

a Novel of the Plague
May 20, 2020
I read Year of Wonders before COVID-19 was a blip on the radar. The idea that a village would have the collective strength and consideration for others they might come into contact with intrigued me. I never thought that a quarantine was in my future, but 2020 has been a year of new experiences for all of us. I enjoyed this book very much, liked the plot, characters and setting, but then I am a sucker for historical fiction. As others have noted, the story does start to fizzle toward the end of the tale, not enough for me to stop reading, though! In fact, I enjoyed Year of Wonders enough that I also read People of the Book by this author.
