A heartbreaking work told through the perspective of one woman as she lives through a year in a town that is voluntarily quarantined with the plague. Geraldine Brooks is an amazing author.

In 1666, a young woman comes of age during an extraordinary year of love and death. Inspired by the true story of Eyam, a plague village in the rugged hill country of England, Year of Wonders is a richly detailed evocation of a singular moment in history, written by the author of Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women.
