This book is beautifully descriptive, written in gorgeously lyrical prose, if overly ornate and over-worked. It is essentially a book about grief, which is vividly described, and evokes the 1580s, when herbalism and witchery were common practices. Apart from the 2 mini stories of the Plague’s journey from Italy to London, and that of a letter from London to Stratford, there was very little story. Many ideas were never developed or resolved. The characters were not well developed, and Agnes, the main character was particularly annoying and silly. Our group was divided in its opinion of the book, with scores ranging from 4 to 9. The average amongst 8 of us was 6.75. Camberley Library Morning Reading Group
