Journal Entry 1 by quietorchid from Saint Paul, Minnesota USA on Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Looks good. Was most excellent. Novel tracing the life of a young girl in South Boston. Gets a job in a department store, gets married, widowed, and finds her vocation (nursing) in the midst of the Spanish inflenza. Fascinating book. Author is actually telling at least 3 stories at once, and doing a good job of it. The primary story is of Lydia Wickett, secondary of the paternoster she invented, Wickett's Remedy, and thirdly, the ghostly story of voices left behind. Charming book. Once I got past page 50, I resented having to put it down.

Chosen from the books on the table at the last meet-up. If I can finish this quickly, it can go into the Medicine Chest Book Box.

I'm afraid this wasn't much my cup of tea. I liked the story of Lydia and Henry and
Lydia's work nursing the flu victims. The second story, about QD Soda, didn't grab me
at all, and I found the voices of the dead in the margins downright annoying. I would
have rather had more story about the flu epidemic, and what happened to Lydia
afterward.
