Year of Wonders
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 Anna's eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. Death reaches into every household. As she struggles to survive and grow, a year of catastrophe becomes instead annus mirabilis, a "year of wonders."

A highly engaging read, and fascinating, too.
