I was encouraged to read this book by my late grandmother who was very interested in the law of common sense and the point of science, especially during the past 20 months of the COVID-19 virus that we have all been plagued by. She informed me that it was important that I read and consume this novel, so I could point out the stupidities and errors of those before us who were struggling with a pandemic of their own. Though it left many to be orphaned and abandoned, it was a basically true reenactment of how the Spanish Flu ripped through populated parts of the United States, including seaports such as Ellis Island and other towns that heavily accepted immigrants and refugees into their gateways, affecting so many before they had any idea of their infections.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who is intrigued by the lights of historical fiction, and it's so timely with its comparisons as well.
