Realy Ann's Picks
This is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite books and authors! It's the story of Anna, a poor housmaid, surviving in the Black Plague year of 1666. She grows and changes into a different, stronger woman, despite the sorrow and horrors of daily life. Brooks writes a terrific female character.
Imagine if Dr. Sheldon Cooper started a so very logical search for a suitable wife and found Rose; a tattooed, vegetarian, Goth, barmaid instead - and decides he kind of likes her... A fun read. --Realy Ann
