Reviews

"The novel glitters . . . A deep imaginative engagement with how people are changed by catastrophe." --The New Yorker

"Year of Wonders is a vividly imagined and strangely consoling tale of hope in a time of despair." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"Brooks proves a gifted storyteller as she subtly reveals how ignorance, hatred and mistrust can be as deadly as any virus. . . . Year of Wonders is itself a wonder." --People

"A glimpse into the strangeness of history that simultaneously enables us to see a reflection of ourselves." --The New York Times Book Review

"Elegant and engaging." --Arthur Golden

"Year of Wonders has it all: strong characters, a trememdous sense of time and place, a clearly defined heroine and a dastardly villain." --The Denver Post
