Subject Term:
When an infected bolt of cloth carries a plague from London to an isolated mountain village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Anna's eyes we follow the story of the plague year, 1666, as her fellow villagers make an extraordinary choice: convinced by a visionary young minister they elect to quarentine themselves within the village boundaries to arrest the spread of the diease. But as death reaches into every household, faith frays. Villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, and Anna must confront the death of family, the disintegration of her community, and the lure of illicit love; and as she struggles to survive, a year of plague becomes, instead, a year of wonders--from Cover.
