Reviews

"In 1665, a tailor in the village of Eyam received a parcel of cloth patterns from London, contaminated pieces that infected him with the plague. . .The author builds a novel that draws readers into the account related by Mall Percival, a young woman betrothed to Thomas Torre, who lives outside the village. . .[A] beautifully written, meaningful story." --Boxed review, Publishers Weekly
