Based on the true story of Eyam, the â€œPlague Villageâ€, located in the rugged mountains of England in 1666.Â As a young widow with small children, Anna Firth, finds herself intensely involved in caring for the sick and dying residents of her small mountain village.Â The townsfolk make the decision to quarantine the village in hopes of stopping the plague from spreading.Â As the disease ravages the village fearful villagers react with fear and jealousy as Anna and the townâ€™s minister try to keep the town from falling into complete chaos.
This is a riveting novel that really brings to life the ethical and emotional impact dealing with the plague must bring.
See you in the brand new stacks this weekend!
