Geraldine Brooks is my new favorite author. Too bad she’s only written two novels so far!
I already wrote about reading her March. I just finished Year of Wonders, and I loved it too. They are two very different books, but very worth recommending. She really does her research, but creates such honest and believable characters. She even made the plague interesting. Reading her book intrigued me enough to look up more information on the “plague village”.
I can’t wait to read her next book (which I’m assuming will be a few years coming)!
