Year of Wonders

Reception

Shaunagh O’Conner describes the novel as “quirky, stranger-than-fiction tales from history,” and praising its use of “fascinating details of life in the 1600s." Laura D. Shumar compared Year of Wonders to "Albert Camus's La Peste (1947; The Plague, 1948)." In an interview with the author, Noah Adams called it "heartbreaking." Shumar also stated that "Anna was not a person but a perfect character." Courier Mail agreed, saying, "we glimpse an independent modern woman than an unconvent 17th-century girl." Laurence Mazzeno of Magill Book Reviews praises it as "Exceptionally well researched and deftly crafted".[6]
