"Author Brooks retells the story of Little Women only this time it's through the voice of the absent father, Captain March. Stunning historical fiction!"

"Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks is a moving book based on a true story about a small English village and how it dealt with the plague's ravage in 1666. Led by a charismatic minister, the village accepted the plague as God's gift and together faced the challenges it brought. Very thought-provoking.
