This review is from: Year of Wonders (Paperback)
This is a very specific book, about specific people, in a specific village at a time of great terror and pestilence in England. It's a quite remarkable story in so far is it's based on true events but I couldn't help feeling that it was missing something. There is no real suspense as the outcome is known from the outset. I suppose this is a story of human endurance and suffering rather than anything else. Not really my cup of tea as a history lover.
