Thanks for a great review, Amy. I read Year of Wonders several years ago. I have had mixed feelings about it - I thought it was incredibly well researched and written. It is full of sadness yet also full of hope. I suppose, at the time, I was looking for a happy ending and what I got was a good ending. Still, I can't stop thinking about the book. I will definitely look for March and People of the Book. Thank you.

If you like historical fiction, I recently read Labyrinth by Kate Mosse and really liked it. I liked how the present and the past were intertwined and you could see the parallels in the way the story was told.


I loved this book. I had many of the same thoughts. I am fascinated by the Jewish religion. It has so many beautiful traditions and rituals. Great review.


I loved the Year of Wonder and passed it on to the LA teacher in my son's 7th grade. They had to read it over the winter, I'm so popular with the kids. LOL I just finished reading Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin, an historical novel in the middle ages. It was very good, a mystery but with alot of Catholic history and the "beginnings" of the split between the Catholic church and England.
