Year of Wonders

A book about the plague in England is not the most tempting of subjects.  However this book pulls it off.  Its loosley based on a true story about a village that isolates itself to protect surrounding villages from an outbreak of the plague.  There is plenty of death and misery in the book but a string sence of presence and authenticity combined with a very strong story of personal growth for the main character.  I really enjoyed the book, and although it has a quirky ending, if you can forgive it that, then I am sure you will too.
