Seventeenth Century

Geraldine Brooks is masterful at weaving historical threads of fact throughout fiction. In Year of Wonders, she conveys the story of a seventeenth century village that succumbs to the merciless scourge of the plague. On the surface, the novel serves as an account of the gruesome and physical sufferings of the village through the voice of Anna. When viewed deeper, however, it becomes a sociological observation in beautiful language of the towns-folk's personal discoveries ranging from sadly disturbing to miraculously wonderful.
