Year of WondersMay 26, 2009
I wanted to mention this book before it went out of my head… it was honestly one of those books I picked up whilst browsing in the local bookshop….the cover appealed to me (first tick) then I read the back (2nd tick) and then I usually read the first page – just to make sure it’s going to grab me… and it did. About an amazing woman in an amazing time – plague, the suspicion of witches and a community struggling to cope. Definitely a highlight in my reading year of wonders….Check out the author’s website here.

“This novel is quite captivating, so rich with period effect that it makes a great candidate for a screen drama.”—Weekend Australian
