Praise

“Highly engrossing…Carrell tells the gripping story with ardor and skill.” —Smithsonian

“Written in a compelling, almost novelistic voice, Carrelldetails two eighteenth-century figures who struggled valiantly against smallpox. The disease becomes a character in the book, claiming the poor, the rich, and the royal without distinction.” —USA Today
