"With the Great War on the horizon, South Boston shopgirl Lydia Kilkenny marries Henry Wickett, a medical student from a wealthy family. The child of Irish immigrants, Lydia is looking to better her lot in life. But when Henry quits medical school in order to peddle patent medicine, Lydia's dreams are deferred -- and then derailed entirely after the Spanish Flu claims Henry's life. But Lydia has never been one to lie down and die, not even during a worldwide pandemic. Fans of E.L. Doctorow will enjoy this meticulously researched slice of American history. And for readers especially interested in the 1918 flu epidemic, Reina James' This Time of Dying is a more sombre depiction of the event, set in London."
