I highly recommend this one - a great, quick, and interesting read.
All of the characters in the book are vivid and engaging, and the author does a great job of blending historical fact and the fiction she weaves around it.
This was a great historical fiction about an outbreak of typhoid fever in New York in the very early 1900s.
I would recommend this book to everybody who wants to read it. I personally loved this book, the author did an amazing job telling the story.Published 1 month ago by dave-cindy
