My friend, Jenny, sent this to me for my birthday. I flew through it---very interesting story. At first I was a little taken aback by the juvenile writing style for what I thought was an adult book. Then I realized it's written for juveniles and begin to think it was pretty in-depth for kids. Ha! Anyway, I'm going to have my teens read this. I think they'll think it's pretty interesting.

Based on the evidence in this book alone, it's hard to sympathize with Mary. Though she may have honestly been unaware of her condition as a healthy carrier, once she was made aware, she should have taken precautions for the health of society. To continually put herself in situations where she could infect others---especially the maternity hospital AFTER being presented with clear evidence of her sickness---was inexcusable.

I would have liked to know more about her later years working with the doctor and details about those last years of her life. Perhaps this information is unavailable.

The Irish potato blight, a story mostly forgotten, brings to the surface more than just potatoes. A great famine that had more than 1 million deaths and 2 millions of people that left the country. It is very sad and disturbing but so real and unfair.

This book was so interesting. I read it as I prepared to direct the musical Newsies. It could also be a valuable source for the musicals Carousel and Ragtime as well. It was very readable and had many beautiful pictures. I do wish there were more intext citations so we knew exactly where things came from.
