This was an enjoyable read as I get sucked into the world of young Mattie during the pestilence of 1793. The writing was simple enough to understand, but it is very engaging that you would get to love the characters. You feel a snowball of emotions – happiness, panic, grief, hope, determination – conveyed to make the readers understand what it takes to be a part of the crisis. It was like a trip to the past, cheering that Mattie would not lost hope until the first frost. . One thing I liked was that I learned something – it was informative and I felt more grateful for the present knowledge in the medical field. I even had my sister search what yellow fever was. I would definitely recommend this as a good read
My Rating: ★★★★☆(4.5)
