Praise for Year of Wonders:

“The novel glitters . . . A deep imaginative engagement with how people are changed by catastrophe.” The New Yorker

“Plague stories remind us that we cannot manage without community . . . Year of Wonders is a testament to that very notion . . . [The villagers] assume collective responsibility for combating the plague, rather than seeing it as an act of God before which they are powerless.” The Washington Post

Year of Wonders is a vividly imagined and strangely consoling tale of hope in a time of despair.” O, The Oprah Magazine

“Brooks proves a gifted storyteller as she subtly reveals how ignorance, hatred and mistrust can be as deadly as any virus. . . . Year of Wonders is itself a wonder.” People

“A glimpse into the strangeness of history that simultaneously enables us to see a reflection of ourselves.” The New York Times Book Review

“Elegant and engaging.” Arthur Golden

“Year of Wonders has it all: strong characters, a trememdous sense of time and place, a clearly defined heroine and a dastardly villain.” The Denver Post
