"Author Brooks retells the story of Little Women only this time it's through the voice of the absent father, Captain March. Stunning historical fiction!"

— From Marika, who listens to member station WUOM in Ann Arbor, Mich.

"Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks is a moving book based on a true story about a small English village and how it dealt with the plague's ravage in 1666. Led by a charismatic minister, the village accepted the plague as God's gift and together faced the challenges it brought. Very thought-provoking.

— From Peggy, who listens to member station WFDD in Winston-Salem, N.C.
